Baptisia ‘Blueberry Sundae’

5 Photos


Baptisia ‘Blueberry Sundae’ has proven to be the best compact, blue-flowered cultivar in our trial. It has consistently been more floriferous than other similar selections like ‘Blue Mound’ and B. australis x minor. Although it does become relatively wide late in the season, ‘Blueberry Sundae’ has a denser habit than the other selections.
