If you thought you'd seen it all...think again. This Hans Hansen selection is a real hussy...so much so, that we aren't sure who was involved in the blessed event, but we've put Baptisia cinerea down as a distant relative. This unusual baptisia makes a compact deer-resistant clump to 28" tall x 38" wide, topped in spring with 12-15" stalks of chocolate flowers that emerge upright, then angle downward as they age. Plant Baptisia 'Chocolate Chip' near Berlandiera (chocolate flower) for a flavorful garden moment...no carbs!
