The Baptisia plant is a flowering perennial that produces flowers on upright, sturdy stalks. It can be used either fresh or dried in arrangements. It is a butterfly attracting plant while deer avoid it.
Baptisia, pronounced bap-TIZZ-ee-uh, is more commonly called False Indigo or Wild Indigo and starts its growth cycle with 'asparagus-like' growth that rapidly matures into attractive mounds of bluish-green three-lobed leaves. Never intrusive, Baptisia maintains it’s manicured, rounded growing habit with appealing foliage year-round. Its blooms appear from mid to late spring, giving way to 2 to 3-inch long eye-catching, black seed pods. It has no serious pest problems or diseases
