False indigo (Baptisia australis) is joy for gardeners especially here at Home Farm Herbery. 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.
Note: we suggest you plant these in the late fall where you want them. If you plant in the spring you may not see anything until next spring.
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!
