Drought Tolerant Perennials

Baptisia 'Lunar Eclipse'

False Indigo
Can't decide between white and blue. 'Lunar Eclipse' is from the Chicagoland series. and is a cross of various Baptisia: alba, austrais, leucophaea and tinctoria. What we get are flowers whose buds start white and mature through shades of violet blue along the spire. Plants, although slow at first will will grow approx. 3' tall and 4' wide. Easy, long lived and deer resistant.
