This Week in the Garden-False Indigo

False Indigo, Garden, Baptisia australis

One of my favorite flowers of all time, False indigo (Baptisia australis)  is in full bloom in the garden this week.

I love the leaves of this plant as much as I adore the pea-like flowers.

The plant has a bush like quality-it maintains a uniform shape all summer.

  1. Peonies are about done and Delphinium are going to open soon. If only I could manage to get them to bloom at the same time what a bouquet that would make!

  2. I love false indigo too! I love the blue bush effect when it’s all in full bloom. I don’t have any where I am nbow, but I used to have some. Gorgeous plant and I recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely bush–and color!

  3. I still have peonies, even though some were destroyed by the thunderstorm and hail! Now I’ve got lupine, geraniums, marigolds, border lilies, snapdragons, black-eyed Susans and dh’s favaorite by the pond, fireweed. I’ve got to look up false indigo – hope it grows here in northern Montana! Ah, summer – even though all the tulips and daffies are done, I look forward to more color.

  4. My garden is blooming with daylillies in many different colors. It’s my favorite flower of summer.

    • I have a lot of day lilies, too. However, most of mine are stella d’oro–a solid yellow. I would like to branch out into a few different varieties. Do you have a favorite, favorite??

  5. I just planted a row of 10 false indigos this spring. I hope they will be blooming this time next year!
