Blue False Indigo. Baptisia carries tall, straight open spikes of really blue pea flowers followed by decorative seed pods which dry well for Winter decoration. Whilst most of the species in this genus grow on sandy, dry woodland soils, Baptisia australis is a native of riverbanks. It enjoys drainage but likes moisture and a deep root. Best planted in a lime free soil in a place where it can be left undisturbed. It is slow starter and disappointing to start with, but give it time as once established it will gradually build over a number of years to a plant that can flower to 75cm tall and be quite showy and a real talking point.X
