I have Baptisia in my own yard and in our Native Community Garden. Beautiful blue flowers, but attractive greenery all season and interesting sedpods in the winter. In Spring you remove last year's branches to reveal new sprouting.

Leaf color is a rich, deep green. Hoping to see flowers this spring.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
