Amsonia 'Georgia Pancake' is a rare blue star, discovered by native plant guru Bob McCartney in a sandhills habitat in central Georgia's Wheeler County. This unusual ecotype, which will possibly be named as a new species, has soft, green, needle-like foliage clothing the prostrate stems. We grow Amsonia ciliata 'Georgia Pancake' in the rock garden, where it makes a dazzling mat of bright green foliage to 2' wide. The foliage turns golden in fall before going to sleep but returns in spring with clusters of pale blue flowers at the tip of each branch. As a soft-foliage contrast around bold textured plants, it is unmatched...as is its deer resistance.
