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.
