Vibrant bluish-purple pea-like flowers are abundant on the native Baptisia cultivar Decadence Blueberry Sundae False Indigo. Like all Baptisias, its flowers stalks fries from the center of pretty green foliage that grows in an upright shape. The flowers on this False Indigo are especially vibrant blue and attract butterflies. Place it in a large container as the "thriller" plant and for height, or anywhere in your garden, even where deer browse.
Because Decadence Blueberry Sundae False Indigo grows to 3 feet or less in height and width, it is a good choice for urban gardens and tight spaces. And you get lots of color in a compact plant. The flower stalks are loaded with blooms from where they meet the foliage to the full 3 feet. Cut the stalks for flower arrangements in summer or wait until dark seed pods appear in fall and cut them for dried arrangements.
Decadence Blueberry Sundae False Indigo Care
Plant your Decadence Blueberry Sundae False Indigo in part sun or full sun in zones 4 through for 9 in nearly any soil type, including poor soil. Water it well the first year; after that, it is drought tolerant. Water false indigos below the plant.
Prune the foliage and dried stalks back after the plant is done flowering if you like to maintain its shape. Try not to disturb the plant's taproot by moving it once it matures. Other than that, the shrub needs little care.
Decadence Blueberry Sundae False Indigo Spacing
Plant this shrub where you can enjoy it in fall. Place nearby plants about 3 feet away to give your Decadence Blueberry Sundae False Indigo plenty of room to grow.
