Blue Ice is one of those mainstay/backbone of your garden type perennials. It is rather like a small shrub, and it looks good all the time. The foliage is always clean and glossy, the small blue flowers are lovely and last quite awhile, and it also has good fall color. It's very low maintenance and trouble-free.
