    • I ordered the quart size of this plant in early spring, had it shipped to zone 9b, and planted it right away. Sadly it’s barely grown beyond the small quart when it arrived. It’s getting full sun and drip irrigation regularly. Perhaps I’m giving it too much water so I’ll move the emitter a little further away from the plant. Hoping for better growth rate and to see at least one flower next year.

    • I have three of these! This is their second year in the ground. The first year I planted them they bloomed a little but didn't grow much (baptisia form big ol taproots and don't like to be moved). This second year though? Wow! They went from maybe 1.5 feet tall to like 4 feet tall and wide with beautiful pink and yellow blooms! They get full sun and no extra water after the first year. These do NOT like to be wet. They will rot and fall over and die. Their taproot allows them to handle drought well once established. Their pea-like foliage is very beautiful even when there are no blooms. The seed pods are pretty cool though I do cut mine off. Overall a great full sun, drought tolerant plant!

    • What a treat! Purchased these on clearance last Fall and this Spring they exploded from the ground and put on quite the show! Lots of growth and tons of beautiful color and texture!

    • An outstanding plant. I love false indigo. Does great as a spring pop of color for several weeks here in Missouri and then is a great foundation in the border the rest of the summer with those cool seed pods. Give them plenty of room.
