Baptisia ‘Royal Purple’
at Digging Dog

Baptisia

False Indigo

Distinguished by their stately postures, these long-lived Legume family members grow wild in the eastern and southern regions of this country. A handsome mass of leaflets grouped in threes and erect, branching stems hosts showy spires adorned with small, sweet-pealike blooms. Later, large brownish black, papery seed pods form, which bring captivating visual accents, and even rattling sounds to arrangements. Easily cultivated in well drained sites, Baptisias tolerate poor, sandy soils and some drought, but resent having their roots disturbed.

Poised upon dramatic 1 ft. tall spires, ‘Royal Purple’s ample dark violet blossoms exhibit the deepest, most opulent purple coloration of all the trialed Baptisia cultivars at Delaware’s highly acclaimed Mt. Cuba Center. This impressive Chicagoland introduction boasts a bumblebee haven of blooms, plus an attractive shrub-like habit with tailored blue-green foliage, lengthy seasonal interest and a virtually pest free vigor. (PPAF)

Blooms May–June.

Size: 3' 0"–4' 0" high x 3' 0"–4' 0" wide; hardy to zone 4.
