This extremely robust and vigorous selection of Baptisia, introduced by the Chicago Botanic Garden, features violet-purple flowers highlighted with a yellow keel. This cross between b. australis and b. sphaerocarpa is a Baptisia on steroids. It can reach 3 - 5' in height, yet is tough enough to stand up to strong winds. A must-have item for every collection of unique perennials.

Hardy in zones 4 to 8.


Blooms with violet purple flowers.
