Lavender Rose False Indigo

A Prairieblues™ Introduction

Baptisia 'Lavender Rose' PP#25876



Selected for its distinct vase-shaped habit and fantastic flower production, but most notably for its unique flower color, which starts off as a rosy-pink color that ages to a soft lavender rose, as unique as its namesake the lavender rose. Peak bloom is in late May (USDA Zone 5).  The original plant (6 years old) was 36" tall x 48" wide in early summer and 12" wider by late autumn in 2010. 

USDA Zones 5 to 7 at least. Introduction #CG09-006. An advanced-generation hybrid developed from Baptisia australis and B. leucophaea. Developed by
Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe, Illinois.
