Great plant pairing: Amsonia and Baptisia

Bluestar (Amsonia) and spiky false indigo (Baptisia) at the Toronto Botanical Garden

Always grateful to discover unexpected combinations of spectacular plants on my travels. This time, I didn’t have to travel far – only to the Toronto Botanical Garden. Don’t know the specific cultivars here, but Amsonia and Baptisia seem made to go together, don’t you think? They’re both low-maintenance perennials, and native North Americans, to boot – great massed, as here.

Perhaps this is Amsonia tabernaemontana? Or one of the shorter cultivars like A. ‘Blue Ice’.
One of the beautiful new smokey-coloured Baptisias? Lovely.
