Have you fallen in love with Baptisia yet? This shrub-like perennial, native to the Texas-Oklahoma region of our country, is a multiseason beauty, offering handsome pea-like blooms as well as standout seed pods. Master breeder Hans Hansen has been working with Baptisia crosses for several decades, and Sparkling Sapphires is the beautiful result.

This gorgeous deep blue bloomer is part of the Decadence® series from Proven Winners.® Decadence takes the Baptisia and makes it more compact, so you get less foliage and more flowers. The petal colors are watercolor-clear, really standing out magnificently on long, sturdy spires. And the seed pods are handsome enough to be cut for indoor arrangements!

Just 2½ to 3 feet high and wide, this perennial makes a big impact in the sunny to partly shaded garden. Its flowers open from late spring into summer, followed by the seedheads. Deer leave it alone, but butterflies may visit in large numbers! An attractive mounded plant that combines well with just about everything else in the border, Sparkling Sapphires is quite low maintenance, displaying all the vigor and adaptability we love native in native plants.

Find a special place for Sparkling Sapphires and get your camera ready! This perennial is certain to be popular with pollinators and human admirers as well! Zones 4-9.
