Phenomenal color change creates dramatic multi-toned shades of oversized flowers on each stem. Blooms emerge light cream then transition to pale lilac-grey, and finally shades of purple/blue.
From the Prairieblue™ Series, False Indigo provides an arresting presence in the garden. Blue-green foliage is topped with spires of lupine-like flowers in late spring. Baptisia is exceptionally long-lived so choose a good shrub-sized space and enjoy its carefree nature. Even when not in bloom, false indigo has lovely foliage. This plant dies all the way to the ground each autumn, and comes back stronger every spring. This is a cultivar of our NATIVE baptisias. 1 gal (more sizes available)
