Baptisia australis Blue Indigo
A beloved Missouri native Blue Indigo, Baptisia australis, enlivens the landscape with showy racemes of pea shaped indigo-blue flowers in late spring and early summer. Showy black seeds pots follow the flowers and look fabulous in dried arrangements. Its ornamental blue-green foliage looks great all year and makes a stunning backdrop for other plants. Winner of the the prestigious 2010 Perennial Plant of the Year. A featured plant of the Missouri Prairie Foundation Grow Native Pollinator Buffet program, a collection of plants that have been identified as being important to pollinators.
Baptisia australis is a carefree and easy to grow perennial. It prefers full sun. Carefully plan where to plant this beauty as plants do not like to be moved.
