"Purple Smoke" is a named variety of Baptisia. It is generally listed as a perennial rather than a shrub even though it is quite large -- and its purplish flowers are very pretty! The more frequently seen Baptisia australis is often called false or wild indigo, probably because its flowers are a lovely true blue close to the color of indigo.
