Plant Description

Dr. Ault at the Chicago Botanical Gardens has introduced yet another outstanding wild blue indigo in the Prairieblues series. This one, ‘Midnight’, has late spring/early summer, deep violet-blue, 2’ inflorescences that are then followed by more flowers lower down on the plant effectively extending the bloom time to more than a month. Like our other baptisias, 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 ‘Peachies Pick’, and a white or yellow coneflower...
