Baptisia ‘Cherries Jubilee’

6 Photos


Baptisia ‘Cherries Jubilee’ is the closest there is to a red-flowered false indigo. Vivid maroon buds become a muted rust color as the flowers age. When viewed up close, the color is very striking, but when viewed from a distance the floral display takes on a slightly duller orange tone due the yellow keel (inner portion of the flower) blending with the reddish outer petals. In peak bloom ‘Cherries Jubilee’ has an impressive 280 inflorescences over its medium-sized habit, creating a truly spectacular display.
