Baptisia 'Vanilla Cream'

False Indigo

Plant Type: Perennial

Hybridized and selected for its shorter, more compact habit, this new Baptisia grows into a very well-branched, full, rounded clump of attractive grey-green foliage. Unlike many native species, this cultivar has a refined, cultivated look about it that makes it worthy of any city garden.

Also unique to this cultivar, the newly emerging foliage is a beautiful shade of bronze which contrasts nicely with other spring green perennials planted nearby in the garden.

From late spring into early summer, 10” long spikes of pastel yellow buds open to creamy vanilla colored flowers on strong scapes. It’s the perfect color for a spring blooming perennial. Seed pods begin to develop immediately after the plant is finished flowering, deepening in color and persisting into fall.
