Baptisia 'Periwinkle Popsicle' PPAF CPBRAF

DECADENCE® DELUXE Series

Common Name: False Indigo

This upright dark blue Baptisia is perfect for filling space in the landscape. The habit is taller than it is wide, with an elegant vase shape perfect for underplanting. 'Periwinkle Popsicle' is later to flower than most Baptisia, not showing color until most other varieties are finishing bloom. Compared with the light blue DECADENCE® DELUXE 'Blue Bubbly', 'Periwinkle Popsicle' blooms a dark shade of blue.

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.

The roots of the DECADENCE® series run deep. What started as a fun botanizing trip in the lower Midwest with a fellow horticultarist blossomed into a complex hybridizing project for breeder Hans Hansen. Hans has made countless crosses with the many native Baptisia species he has collected across Texas and Oklahoma. These crosses have resulted in an array of seedlings with unique flower colors and plant habits, the best of which are intrduced into the DECADENCE® Series.
