Unique and exciting new perennial variety
Another fabulous introduction from plant breeders Proven Winners, this unusual perennial has a wide, mounding, shrub like habit. Amsonia Storm Cloud emerges from the ground each spring as incredibly dark, near black stems, which grow into olive green leaves with silver veins, somewhat resembling willow foliage. Clusters of star shaped light periwinkle blue flowers are held above the foliage and completely cover the plant for many weeks, from late spring to early summer.
Tall and strong
Expect the strong stemmed Storm Cloud to reach a height of 2-2.5 feet. Although the main interest of this plant is in spring, it maintains a great garden presence throughout the summer and fall, being heat and humidity tolerant, deer resistant and low maintenance. Very easy to please – just plant in full to part sun and enjoy the unique features of this hardy perennial each year.
