Baptisia 'Plum Rosy' produces numerous spires of mauve pink flowers that lighten to white as they age. The blooms rise atop pretty green, upright vase-shaped plants in late spring, creating elegant two-tone bouquets of blooms. The foliage remains pretty through the summer so 'Plum Rosy' makes a nice shrub substitute.
Baptisia, also known as False Indigo or Wild Indigo, is a genus that is native to most of the eastern two-thirds of the United States. It is a tough, disease and pest resistant perennial that thrives in sunny, well-drained soils.
Baptisia 'Plum Rosy' prefers full sun to light shade, but blooms best in full sun. It tolerates a variety of soils so long as they are well-drained. A tap-rooted plant, it is drought tolerant, but difficult to move once established.
