SKU: ams_tab_000 Categories:
Amsonia tabernaemontana has a large underground root that sprouts multiple semi-woody stems lined with slender, opposite, glossy leaves that are topped with flowers in spring. The flowers are pale blue to white-colored with five petals and are about 1/2″ across. The multiple stems covered in leaves give this plant a bushy, or shrub-like appearance. Clump-forming and drought tolerant, this is a good plant for sunny borders or rock gardens.
