Plant Features

Carolina Moonlight Baptisia is a spectacular hybrid that goes solidly against the "blue" nature of most Wild Indigo. Spires reaching to 18-inches bear the most luscious, buttery-colored flowers atop dense bluish-green foliage. Known to attract butterflies, its blossoms give way to swollen seed pods that average about 2.5-inches long and turn charcoal black when ripe. Carolina Moonlight maintains ornamental interest throughout the growing season. Consider growing this False Indigo specimen with other rough and tough plants like ornamental grasses. Commonly called: Wild indigo, False indigo.

Companion Planting: Euphorbia, Rudbeckia, Saliva
