Baptisia australis var. minor
Dwarf Wild Indigo
Always wanted the native false indigo in your garden but it was just too big? Here is your plant! Large violet-blue 12-18″ flower spikes bloom profusely in spring above 2′ of tidy blue-green foliage.
Decorative black seed pods are excellent for dried flower arrangements and winter interest. Looks equally at home in formal gardens as well as in more naturalistic gardens.
Full-part sun. Height and spread 2-3′. Drought tolerant. Deer and rabbit resistant. Zones 3-8.
