False Indigo

Baptisia australis

Commonly known as false indigo, this easy to grow perennial has attractive foliage with good form with stunning spikes of sweet pea-shaped flowers. The colorful blooms come in a variety of colors and are complemented by attractive, blue-green foliage. After the flowers have faded, there will be large clusters of showy seed pods that will dry out on the stem and have a gentle rattling sound in the wind.
