A member of the pea family, Baptisia is a flowering, native North Carolina plant. Easy to grow and deer resistant, Baptisia also comes in a variety of colors. Once established, it’s virtually maintenance-free and drought tolerant.

Some Baptisia species are also known as false indigo. Native Americans, and later European settlers, once used Baptisia as a source of blue dye.
