Wild Blue Indigo starter plant (baptisia australis). Wild blue indigo is a standout plant for the sunny butterfly pollinator garden. This plant can be a bit more challenging as it is rather slow growing, but worth the wait with blue spikes of flowers in early to mid summer. Host plant for the wild indigo duskywing butterfly. These are slow growing and can take 2-3 years to produce flowers. They will have a much smaller root system that some other plants we sell and need to be watched to make sure they are not out competed till they mature.
These have gone dormant for the year, but still have excellent root growth and can be planted anytime the ground isn’t frozen. Just treat as is though it were still growing and water through any prolonged dry spells. These are grown outside here in Michigan. They may still have some foliage or yellowing foliage if ordered in early fall but as fall progresses and through winter, will just be old stems. Planting dormant plants is a great way to get plants established for next season!
All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ You can plant them with the pot on or remove them. if you leave the pot on, i would rip the sides for easier root penetration.
