Lavender Rose False Indigo

A Prairieblues™ False Indigo 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 at six years of age measured 36" tall x 48" wide in early summer and 12" wider by late autumn. The vase-shaped habit early in the season becomes more rounded later in the year. Clean, attractive foliage adds to its display value. An advanced-generation hybrid of Baptisia australis and B. bracteata (B. leucophaea) developed by Dr. Jim Ault at the Chicago Botanic Garden in Glencoe, Illinois. USDA Zones 5-7.
