Baptisia x arachnifolia
Arachnifolia Hybrid False Indigo
Item #: 9474
Zones: 6a to 9b, possibly colder
Height: 42" tall
Origin: United States Hybrid
This spectacular Plant Delights introduction occurred under the cover of darkness one warm, sultry summer night, when our clumps of the endangered Baptisia arachnifera and a nearby Baptisia simplicifolia got a bit frisky outside our bedroom window. Our ten year old clump has matured at 3.5' tall x 5' wide, adorned with silvery grey leaves, and topped, starting for us in early July with short spikes of bright yellow flowers...a true showpiece that's larger than either parent. Since the hybrid doesn't get endangered status, we can ship this one worldwide.
