  • The blue wild indigo Baptisia Australis is easy to grow and take care of.

This is a dwarf, darker purple/blue flowering blue wild indigo Baptisia Australis that is rare in the wild in glades and barrens with alkaline soil in Tennessee, Kentucky, Alabama, and South Carolina. It forms 18-inch tall clumps of much smaller and closely spaced leaves than typical wild indigo and produces flower spikes that extend another six inches above the leaves. It is a little powerhouse of color! Plant this one in your dry, sunny garden where smaller is better. Try it with purple lovegrass, conradina, and eastern bergamot.
