Baptisia 'Cherries Jubilee DECADENCE'

Indigo, False
An unusually beautiful and unique flower color as well as densely branched foliage set this new variety apart. Deep maroon buds open to bicolor maroon and yellow flowers held on strong scapes above the blue-green foliage in late spring to early summer. Secondary branching on the flower stems makes this variety especially floriferous. Well-branched stems form a bushy, upright spreading mound of foliage that is relatively short for Baptisia. It is a good candidate for the middle of the flower border. Ornamental seed pods extend the season of interest into fall.

Baptisia 'Dutch Chocolate DECADENCE'

Indigo, False
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.

Baptisia 'Gape Taffy'

Indigo, False
‘Grape Taffy’ a new Baptisia developed by Hans Hansen at Walters Gardens, Inc., is one of the most compact Baptisia to date. Coming in at under 2½ feet tall, this naturally compact plant stays small. Spikes of deep reddish-purple flowers appear in early summer, reminiscent of grapes. Each flower is accented by a buff yellow keel. The reddish-purple flowers are a color break for Baptisia, a departure from the typical deep blue flowers of the genus. The green foliage looks attractive even when the flowers are not in bloom. This extremely long-lived perennial could be used instead of a shrub in landscape settings, with minimal care required to thrive year after year.

Baptisia 'Indigo Spires'

Indigo, False
This Baptisia greatly did well in trials with its perfect habit and heavy flower production. Unlike some Baptisia which can be tall and leggy, ‘Indigo Spires’ forms a densely branched, fully rounded clump of glaucous green foliage that extends far down the stems, leaving little bare stem showing at the base. In early summer, 12-15" long spikes of deep violet purple flowers accented by a yellow keel are borne on all sides of the rounded clump, not just at the top, producing a bigger show of color overall. Secondary flower spikes extend the flowering time into midsummer. This perennial could easily be used in place of a shrub in the landscape where it will be extremely long lived and require little care to thrive year after year. Baptisia is easy to grow and will thrive with little maintenance. There are many potential applications in the landscape including meadow plantings, as a backdrop in borders, or as a specimen. Plants are very long-lived once established.

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.

Brunnera macrophylla 'Green Gold'

Brunnera
‘Green Gold’ Brunnera emerges in spring with brilliant chartreuse yellow foliage that absolutely glows in the shade garden. Sprays of tiny baby blue, forget-me-not type flowers float above the radiant foliage in mid to late spring. As the summer sets in, the leaves grow more broadly heart-shaped and turn green, remaining that way for the rest of the season.

Brunneras are classic perennials that are treasured for their shade tolerance and lovely blooms.
