USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
More compact than most amsonias, Blue Ice also boasts larger flowers in a deeper color than other varieties. The star-shaped, dark lavender-blue flowers are about 3/4" across and appear in late spring or early summer. The leaves are relatively broad, resembling willow leaves. At just 12 to 16" high, Blue Ice combines well with other perennials without overwhelming them, and the shorter stems are less prone to flopping than taller varieties.

Amsonias form upright mounds of feathery foliage, topped in spring by delicate blue blossoms. They're easy to grow, preferring full sun to part shade and moist, rich soil. The feathery foliage of taller varieties make a pretty backdrop for other perennials, and the leaves turns a brilliant yellow in fall.
