Tell Me More...
Densely branched and fully rounded clumps of glaucous green foliage are held from March through to November each year offering height to the mid-tier of a border or in a large container. In May to July deep, indigo blue flowers with yellow centres emerge and are held in multiples on long, strong stems. Blooms are perfect for cutting to add to a vase or floral display. Once flower fade, they are followed by intriguing black seedpods which, if allowed to scatter seed, will naturalise and spread for even more delight. Pods also look beautiful if left on the stems over winter - particularly when caught by frost.Bees and other pollinators love the open, easily accessible pea-like flowers and will, literally, make a 'beeline' to stock up on nectar. Plants are drought tolerant once they have established and happy planted on a back, in containers or in an herbaceous border.Baptisia australis 'Indigo Spires' prefers to be planted in well-drained, loam or sand-based soil in full sun. Grows to a height of 1.2m and will spread up to 1m. A hardy, herbaceous perennial which dies back in late autumn and returns the following spring.
