False indigo or Baptisia australis ranks among one of my favorite plants. The foliage is greenish blue and has flowers that resemble pea flowers. They bloom in early summer.
My neighbor keeps telling me to get rid of this, as it stands towards the front of the border and distracts from the rest of the plants. But there is no way I am touching this one. I absolutely adore this plant. Doesn’t need any attention at all. The leaves tend to grow outward and may need to be trimmed .
This is my entry for Flower Fest.
