Dr. Ault at the Chicago Botanical Gardens has introduced yet another outstanding False Blue Indigo in the Prairieblues series. This one, ‘Midnight’, has late spring/early summer, deep violet-blue, flowers on two foot tall stems, that are then followed by more flowers lower down on the plant effectively extending the bloom time to six weeks or so. Ultimately, it may reach up to five feet in height. Like our other Baptisia plants, give ‘Midnight’ full sun and average to dry soil. It is very long lived and drought tolerant and will be a large, major player in your garden. Picture it with smooth phlox, stokesia ‘Peachie’s Pick,’ and a white or yellow coneflowers.
