Blue false indigo is a sturdy plant. It’s blue flowers on upright stalks make for a pretty spectacular sight when in bloom. It is also a larval host plant to numerous butterflies. This is a stunning perennial with wonderful stature. It should not be left out of a good flowering garden or meadow. The seed pods can be left for interest into the fall and winter, or trim a few for the littles to use as rattles! Baptisia is in the legume family, and makes for a great nitrogen fixer. Although not native to the farm coast, it’s natural migration pattern would make sense for it to travel here from its native range, just a smidge south.
