Answer: This is the common name for Baptisia australis. This extremely cold hardy perennial grows into a bush sized plant (about four feet tall and wide) and produces long lasting blue blooms in early spring, about when the Siberian iris bloom. The foliage stays attractive all season. It is deep rooted and does well in full sun and average soil conditions. It is long lived and nearly impossible to transplant, so select a spot for it where it will have enough room when it reaches full size after several years.
