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.

Excellent banner Dirt!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

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.
I post high resolution photos (nature, travel, and other subjects) on smugmug

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:
