Baptisia 'Dutch Chocolate DECADENCE'

False Indigo

Plant Type: Perennial

Rich velvety chocolate purple flowers held on upright stems above an especially compact mound of foliage in late spring to early summer makes this plant ideal for smaller urban gardens. The deep blue green foliage remains densely compact as the plant matures and the leaves start lower on the stems, covering the base of the plant better than most Baptisias. This is a vigorously growing selection that looks great all season. Ornamental seed pods extend the season of interest into fall. PROVEN WINNER.
