Baptisia Australis, also known as ‘Blue False Indigo’ is native to Central and Eastern North America and is also holder of the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit.  It is a hardy herbaceous clump forming, perennial with grey-green three parted leaves, amongst which upright spikes of indigo-blue flowers appear from early Summer making it a great attraction for the many insects that visit the garden. A superb plant for the flower border providing added interest during the Winter months when the seed heads are left to sway in the wind.
