False Indigo Heirloom Seeds

False indigo (Baptisia australis) is joy for gardeners. It is hardy, virtually pest and maintenance free and provides interest in the garden all year long. Deep blue to purple lupine-like flowers appear in late spring to early summer on stems of bluish-green three-lobed leaves. The dark, shiny seed pods that follow the flowers last through fall and winter providing interesting color and texture to the winter garden.

Size: 3 to 4 feet tall and wide. The plant usually remains more narrowly upright until it blooms, after which it relaxes into a round shrubby shape.

Exposure: Full sun. Tolerates partial shade but flowering will be diminished and the plant may become leggy and need staking.

Soil: Prefers sandy soil but will tolerate a range of soil types as long as drainage is good.

Watering: Generally doesn't require supplemental watering. Tolerates drought once established.

Propagation: By seed. Do not divide mature clumps, because they have a large tap root and complex structure.

This reseeds itself year after year and you can collect the seeds and start them anywhere. Truly beautiful and stunning flowers.
