    Handsome perennials that are sought after for their showy spikes of late spring and early summer flowers, their attractively divided grey-green foliage and their decorative seed pods, which can be used in dried arrangements.
    Well suited to naturalised planting schemes or herbaceous borders, they are adaptable and easy to grow sun-loving plants, which rarely suffer from pests and diseases.

    In each collection you will receive 3 × 9cm baptisia plants one of each of the following -

  • 'Baptisia australis'Upright spikes of dark indigo-blue, pea-like flowers in June, often flecked white or cream. False indigo is perfect for a well-drained border or a dry, sunny bank. Resist the temptation to cut the plant back in autumn since the seed-pods and slender stems look wonderful frosted in the winter garden.

  • 'Baptisia Pink Truffles' Recently introduced and a more compact form than many other baptisias this false indigo is perfect for a well-drained border or a dry, sunny bank as it will become drought tolerant once well established. Resist the temptation to cut the plant back in autumn as the seed-pods and slender stems look wonderful frosted in the winter garden.

  • 'Baptisia Vanilla Cream' Recently introduced and a more compact form than many other baptisias this false indigo is perfect for a well-drained border or a dry, sunny bank as it will become drought tolerant once well established. Resist the temptation to cut the plant back in autumn as the seed-pods and slender stems look wonderful frosted in the winter garden.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large colonies in early spring if necessary though they are best left undisturbed if you can since they develop deep tap roots which enable them to be more drought tolerant.
