Buy Baptisia 'Dutch Chocolate' (Decadence Series) false indigo: Unusual coppery chocolate flowers attractive to butterflies

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, preferably sandy soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Who could resist these deliciously rich chocolately flowers that are beautifully set off by the lush foliage. Used to great effect at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2016 the warm flowers work particularly well in copper toned planting schemes. Recently introduced and a more compact form than many other baptisias this false indigo is perfect for a well-drained border or a dry, sunny bank as it will become drought tolerant once well established. Resist the temptation to cut the plant back in autumn as the seed-pods and slender stems look wonderful frosted in the winter garden.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large colonies in early spring if necessary though they are best left undisturbed if you can since they develop deep tap roots which enable them to be more drought tolerant.
