Spectacular hybrid of our native False Indigo. One the earliest blooming Baptisia, this vigorous, upright to arching grower produces numerous flower stems each bearing a profusion of bicolored flowers from late spring through midsummer. Deep violet-lavender buds unfurl into handsome periwinkle-blue blooms, each with a contrasting butter-cream keel. Attractive, blue-green foliage. A superb semi-formal specimen for the sunny border. Attractive to butterflies. (Baptisia australis x B. bracteata)
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.
