Deep lavender-blue buds lighten as they open; the spires of blooms create a soft two-tone effect, just like a favorite pair of jeans. Baptisia 'Faded Jeans' blooms in late spring to early summer in Lupine-like racemes. Very nice companion for Peonies.
Baptisia, also known as False Indigo, has attractive blue-green foliage and ornamental seed pods. A wonderful and long-lived choice for perennial borders, cottage gardens, or mingled with native plants in a meadow or prairie type planting. It is drought tolerant when established, deer resistant, and attracts butterflies. Good for cut flowers.
