A shorter, more compact cultivar of the native genus Baptisia, 'Grape Taffy' comes in at just 2 to 2 1/2 feet tall, making it a perfect choice for a smaller garden. Featuring spikes of purple flowers with a hue that leans more toward a warm red than blue, accented by a yellow keel in each bloom, this specimen or border plant is sure to impress.

Notable Features: Good Cut Flower, Deadheading Not Necessary, Drought Tolerant, Salt Tolerant

Homeowner Growing Tips: Easy to grow in average to poor soil that is well-drained. Best in full sun, but it will tolerate light shade. If grown in too much shade it will need to be staked. Moderately drought tolerant once established, which may take a couple seasons. Cut back in spring, or whenever it gets flattened by autumn or winter weather. A long-lived plant; avoid disturbing the clump once established.
