Baptisia austrailis (False Indigo)



Baptisia, or False Indigo  is a stunning addition to the flower garden. It forms a large plant, up to 4 feet tall, and is a centerpiece with blue, spiked flowers in late spring and early summer. It is prized by cut flower growers for its flowers, foliage and large black seedpods.

Baptisia forms a long taproot which makes it drought resistant but also very hard to move so plan accordingly.

Milkweeds are the host plant for the Monarch caterpillar.
