Cherries Jubilee False Indigo

Baptisia x DECADENCE Cherries Jubilee PP23907 An unusually beautiful and unique flower color as well as densely branched foliage set this variety apart. Deep maroon buds open to bicolor maroon and yellow flowers held on strong scapes above the blue-green foliage in May-June. Secondary branching on the flower stems makes this variety especially floriferous and long blooming. As the flowers age, they turn gold.

Well-branched stems form a bushy, upright spreading mound of foliage that is relatively short for Baptisia. It is a good candidate for the middle of the flower border. Ornamental seed pods extend the season of interest into fall.
