We love blue stars, and are excited to have introduced Amsonia 'Short Stack' in 2003, selected from a batch of seedlings in the 1980s. We have offered Amsonia 'Short Stack' as a selection of Amsonia "montana", which appears to be a non-valid name which first appeared in 1977 in Buckley's 1977 Canadian Garden Perennials, for what may be a dwarf form of Amsonia tabernaemontana. Amsonia 'Short Stack' is happy in our rock garden where its dwarf, 10" tall x 18" wide, perfectly rounded form has been superb. The clean, dark green, deer-resistant foliage contrasts nicely with the medium sky-blue flowers that top the plant in early April...a real winner!
