Baptisia australis

False Indigo

This durable, long-lived native perennial produces weather-resistant, soft gray-green foliage 3–4' high, topped in June by intense blue flowers that last for weeks, followed by prominent dark seedpods, which all-told, make an attractive presence throughout the summer. This durable plant looks good on its own against a stone wall or fence, or at the back of the border.
