False Indigo (Baptisia australis)

This attractive stalk-like plant offers beautiful blue or white clusters flowers. It has pretty blue-green leaves that stand out in a garden just as much as the blooms. False Indigo can grow up to 4 feet tall. It produces a very large tap root and is difficult to transplant, so plant in an area where you will enjoy it for many years. False Indigos will add an element of completion to any garden.
