Cool New Perennial

Last summer after touring Walters Gardens display gardens for hours, I was stopped in my tracks by this plant.  The fine texture was so attractive as it hugged the ground so neatly.  “Is that an Amsonia?” I asked and reached for my camera.  “Yes, but it’s brand new & not available yet.  You can’t share it with your customers yet.  Please put your camera away Karen.”

Do you know how hard it was to keep this hidden treasure SECRET for an entire year?  Awww…big sigh of relief….I can finally share this great new plant with you.

     Frankly I don’t know that I’m that excited about the bloom.  You will grow this perennial for the foliage.  What a beautiful groundcover for the front of your beds.  It only grows 4-6″ tall with a nice spread of 16-24″.  When the fern like foliage turns yellow late summer, you’ll fall in love with this Amsonia all over again.  What a lovely compliment to the autumn colors of sedum and mums.  Zone 5-9 

I suggest you Order NOW as this item is sure to be popular.  Available to ship bareroot late September or pot them up in January.  

Quantities of 25 @ $2.29 each.
