A 2014 Green Thumb Award winner from the Direct Gardening Association! We have long felt the need for an improved baptisia with large blue-purple flowers and have been breeding toward that goal since 1998, culminating with our 2014 release of Baptisia 'Blue Towers'. This 2004 Baptisia australis x Baptisia alba hybrid has a very upright, tower-like form to 4.5', which includes a huge 20" tall flower spike of large blue-lavender flowers. The tall stalks without basal foliage allow for companion planting around the base. For us, Baptisia 'Blue Towers' starts flowering around late April (NC).
