Very Drought Tolerant

I ordered four Purple Smoke Baptisia plants from GrowJoy last spring. They all arrived very healthy. I didn't water them much, but they have proven to be very drought tolerant. I'm looking forward to how they will look by next spring. Maybe next spring they will produce blooms.

Nice Looking Plants

My Purple Smoke Baptisia Plants arrived in great condition and were well packed. The stems were already hardened off and ready to be planted outdoors.

Purple Smoke Baptisia

This plant arrived in good condition. Well packaged as have been all the plants I've ordered from you. The plants are healthy looking and planted now. Waiting for results as it grows.

Purple Smoke Baptisia

These plants were all packaged well and delivered in wonderful shape and size. They seem to be thriving so far and I've only had them in the ground about a month now.
