I read in your magazine about amsonia and want to know where this may be purchased?
The Gardener’s Answer
Hello, Paula: Thanks for reading the Kentucky Living magazine! Amsonia is a must-have perennial for any sun-loving garden. It has a very light and airy characteristic to it and puts on a stunning show later in the fall. As far as locating this plant, it should be available at your local garden centers and/or nurseries later in the spring. I would not expect to find it at a Home Depot or Lowes. You may start calling around to see who carries it locally and ask them to call you when they receive their shipment. If you need help finding sources, contact your County Cooperative Extension Service. The Grayson County horticulture/agriculture agent can be reached at (270) 259-3492. If you cannot find it in your county, we at The Plant Kingdom in Louisville consider it one of our favorites and try to always have a good supply. Let us know if you need us to hold one for you. Our phone number is (502) 893-7333.
