  • TB Glistening Icicle was blooming at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately June 2-12, in 2017. The beards match the blue of the falls at the tip end, then are tipped yellow at about the 1/2 way point, becoming a more golden yellow in the throat. -- HollyJohnson2017-04-01 - 24 Aug 2017
