Amsonia ridiga (Stiff Bluestar) [20 Seeds]

$3.95

Germination Information: I recommend these seeds for experienced seed-starters only, because they may require some patience. The easiest approach is to sow the seeds (just barely covered with growing medium) in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, set the pot in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for about 2 months before moving it to a warm, bright place for germination. (Remove the bag if the pot will be exposed to any direct sun.)

Description

Stiff bluestar (Amsonia rigida) is a U.S. native that produces clusters of light blue flowers in late spring and rich yellow fall leaf color; 18 to 24 inches tall. The overall effect is something like that of ‘Blue Ice’, but this species is a distinctly a clump-former rather than a spreader. The plants I collected these seeds from were growing near Arkansas bluestar (A. hubrichtii), so there’s a small possibility that some seedlings may show some intermediate traits. Full sun to light shade. Perennial; Zones 5(?) to 9.

Collected in October 2020. At least 20 seeds.
