Details

15-18" tall x 18" wide. This stunning selection of the prairie native, lesser false indigo, was originally collected from the Sand Hills of Western Nebraska where its tall deep blue spikes caught the attention of its discoverers, Scott and Lauren Springer Ogden. It is now thought to be a hybrid between B. australis v. minor and A. alba. Grown from seeds, collected off the original 'Blue Rocket' plant, the seedlings will be variable in size and flower color, ranging from white to deep blue. In your landscape, it will be a long lived perennial that attracts bumblebees to its nectar-rich flowers. Plant with Dalea, Ratibida. Seed propagated.

Q & A

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
