Dirt, this is a great banner. Amsonia has a pretty little blue flower, and I like the rock at the far right. The species I had put out a lot of underground runners where I didn't want them, so I dug most of it up and am keeping the rest contained.

Lovely banner from these dainty blue flowers. I'm sure I've seen this planted in various gardens, but never knew (or once knew, but then forgot) their name.

Good to know! I might have to try A jonesii. I have 'Blue Ice'---I don't know the species. Has darker blue flowers. Note: the entries for Blue Ice in the database appear to represent many different species.

Here is Blue Ice from my garden:
