Amsonia 'Storm Cloud' Description

Starry blue flowers, exceptional durability, and deer resistance: that's what you get in 'Storm Cloud' bluestar (Amsonia tabernaemontana). You may never have heard of this gorgeous native perennial from Proven Winners, but between its memorable floral display, showy purple-black stems, and rock-solid dependability, it definitely earns a spot in your sunny garden. It's more tolerant of heat and humidity than conventional bluestar, expanding the range where it can be grown and enjoyed. Very easy to grow, and a great plant for beginning gardeners.

Special features: Native, Deer resistant, Rabbit resistant, Proven Winners, easy to grow, sun-loving
