12-15" tall x 18-24" wide. Enjoy the distinctive look of this fabulous Amsonia with its late spring display of vivid, lavender-blue flowers and brilliant yellow fall foliage. In fact, 'Blue Ice' has the showiest, most deeply colored flowers you'll see in an Amsonia. A garden hybrid of the native A. tabernaemontana and another undetermined species, this beauty is a vigorous grower and, like all Amsonia, is completely deer-proof. Plant it in and around other plants to help protect them from the deer.

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).
