Baptisia 'Burgundy Blast'


Baptisia 'Burgundy Blast' is a false indigo with spires of purple and yellow flowers and blue-green foliage.

Baptisia 'Burgundy Blast' is a new take on an old favourite with spires of dark wine-purple lupin-like flowers with hints of yellow anchored above blue-green foliage. Flowers bloom late spring to early summer followed by ornamental dark seed pods. Baptisia are long-lived and are highly adaptable but dislike being moved once established. Choose a place well and they will grow into a vase-shaped anchor plant, maturing to shrub size at 36 - 42 inches tall and wide. Pollinator attractor. Deer resistant.
