Baptisia australis is a beautiful North American prairie perennial which is tough, drought tolerant and very attractive. In early Spring fresh growth emerges from the ground in the form of lovely blue-green foliage and develops, in time, into a sizeable clump around 100 to 120cm tall and as much across. The flowering spikes then emerge and are made up of indigo-blue pea like flowers which last for many weeks. When finished these flowers develop into black seed pods which in themselves add further interest. The vase-shaped clump is a neat, tidy shape even when flowering has finished. Baptisia should be left in the ground untouched as they do not like being divided. Over the years the clump will become bigger and more impressive. Plant in full sun and in any ordinary soil. Our plants are sold in super tree tubes.
