This compact 2011 Hans Hansen introduction (a Baptisia minor hybrid) forms a 30" tall x 2' wide clump topped in late April (NC) with spikes of black-purple buds that mature to brown...the darkest flower of any baptisia so far. Baptisia 'Dutch Chocolate' is an amazing color breakthrough in this wonderful group of US native, deer-resistant, drought-tolerant perennials.
