Baptisia australis 'Indigo Spires' (Walters)

Baptisia australis 'Indigo Spires'

False Indigo

'Indigo Spires' False Indigo flowers in May and June, producing 12-15" showy spikes of deep violet pea-shaped blooms.  The green stems are very sturdy so the flowers are held upright above the clumps.  Baptisias have deep taproots and become almost shrub-like in size as they mature.  Baptisia 'Indigo Spires' is very tolerant of both dry sites and road salt.  A Walters Gardens introduction.
