Baptisia 'Cherries Jubilee'

Cherries Jubilee Baptisia (Cherries Jubilee False Indigo): Patent PP23907

Categories: Herbaceous Perennial

An unusually beautiful and unique flower color as well as densely branched foliage set this new variety apart.  Deep maroon buds open to bicolor maroon and yellow flowers held on strong scapes above the blue-green foliage in late spring to early summer.  Secondary branching on the flower stems makes this variety especially floriferous. As the flowers age, they turn gold.
