Baptisia australis

This bushy native perennial produces blue to purple pea-like flowers. This plant is stunning in full bloom. Leaves are green and divided into three leaflets. In the wild, it’s often found in prairies, meadows or edge habitats. Flowers are usually pollinated by native bees and its foliage feeds Sulphur Butterfly caterpillars. Flowers are then followed by large seed pods, which are quite unique. It takes a few years for Blue Wild Indigo to form its large tap root so be patient. Usually by year 3, the plant will begin to flourish topside.
