False Indigo

Without fail, every year the False Indigo or Baptisia Australis returns and puts on a spectacular show at around this time. Its commanding size and gorgeous spikes of indigo flowers are really a show stopper going head to head with the peony thats right next to it (which will take its turn in the spotlight very shortly). I discovered this plant years ago when I put one into the flower border at the summer house in Westerly and discovered its tenacity which of course is largely due to it being a native plant, and particularly suited to its environment.
