Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden recently released the Prairieblues series of wild indigos, and now he has introduced an outstanding Baptisia hybrid between B. australis (Wild Blue Indigo) and B. sphaerocarpa (Yellow Baptisia), called 'Twilite Prairieblues.' This one has three to four foot tall spikes of dark mahogany/violet flowers with yellow keels or bases. When in bloom in late spring and early summer, it will be absolutely loaded with flowers. As with the other Baptisias, give this one full sun and average to dry soil. It is long lived, drought tolerant, pest free, and the colors are way cool!
