Baptisia australis Seeds
False Blue Indigo
This native has showy blue flowers in late spring/early summer followed by ornamental charcoal-colored seed pods that are beautiful in arrangements and in the garden.
Blueish green foliage is tidy. With its shrub-like growth habit, deep taproot, and long-lived hardiness, False Indigo is a reliable perennial that brings years of color and structure to the garden. Equally beautiful as a specimen and massed.
