Grape Taffy Baptisia

Description
We love this new baptisia for its gorgeous purple blooms, versatility and long–lived nature. You'll love it for what it does to your late–spring landscape and beyond. Grape Taffy is a wonderful perennial that bears rich, pea–shaped florets that march up and down graceful, upright spikes of gray–green. The unique foliage is a lovely blue–green color and remains attractive even when the blooms are gone for the year. Plus, Grape Taffy is more compact and petite than other baptisia varieties, making it ideal for borders and fresh or dried arrangements. The shorter stems keep the flower spikes upright and visible through the unpredictable spring weather. Butterflies love the colorful blooms, too. Baptisia 'Grape Taffy' PP26587
