Blue False Indigo
Vibrant, Blue Flowers with Spring, Summer and Fall Interest
If you’ve ever been lucky enough to drive through the prairies in the American Mid-West at peak wildflower bloom, then you need no introduction to this beautiful native flower.
Blue False Indigo, Baptisia australi, is such a standout that people have brought it far and wide from its native fields and you can find it happily growing in town squares and neighborhood front yards all over the country.
Blue False Indigo is a bushy perennial with vibrant blue-green foliage that will quickly grow to fill bare spots in your perennial border each year, but its blue spikes of flowers are what makes False Blue Indigo such a striking star amid other spring plantings.
Once the flowers have faded, intriguing seed pods take their place. Blue False Indigo seeds roll freely in the pods and generations of kids have pulled them off and used them as toys since they sound like a rattle when they’re shaken.
Blue False Indigo is a truly hardy native that will come back strong for you each year, getting bigger and more beautiful as time passes. It is long-lived, providing years of enjoyment for your landscape with its impressive spikes of vivid, blue flowers and attractive seeds. Order some of these native beauties today!
