May 2021 False indigo plant

This plant was given to me by a neighbor gardener and has settled in really well. Last year it wasn’t that great –but this year I think it will really show off.

I am going to dig out the primroses that are crowding around the bottom of this plant. I think it needs more room and also the branching bottom parts of the plant are lovely (when visible).

The other name for false indigo is Baptisia australis and wikipedia tells me that it is in the family Fabaceae. My gardening neighbor has white and yellow also. I like the blue / purple.
