Sorry, we are only shipping hostas and daylilies at the moment. The website will be updated for a select number of perennials in mid to late September for shipping the week of 9/23 and we will post a message when the inventory is updated. We can ship hostas and daylilies now, and orders for those are being processed within 7 days.

The nursery will be closing for good on October 12th and this will be our last year in operation.  We have not put anything into production so our fall inventory will be very limited. We are sorry for the disappointment however we thank you for your years of support.

Baptisia 'Dark Chocolate'

Baptisia 'Dark Chocolate' (PPAF) has very dark purple flowers that blossom on tall spikes, well above the spring foliage.  While the flower color is the same purple shade as Baptisia 'Dutch Chocolate', this selection has much longer flower spikes. Like others in the Decadence™ Series is a more compact selection, growing 3 1/2' tall and wide.  It is also a Proven Winners® perennial selection.

Baptisia is a member of the legume family so it has a pea-like flower and rounded leaves like sweet peas and lupines. They grow to shrub-like proportions but die back to the ground each winter. It grows from a very deep taproot and will develop a massive root system over time, but can be moved successfully when dormant in the spring and fall.

Height: 42" Spacing: 36" apart
Light: Full sun to part sun Soil: Any average to rich, well-draining
Bloom Time: Early summer Zones: 3 - 8
