Quick Overview:

‘Blue Bubbly’ is a lavender-blue flowering large variety of baptisia. Its vase-like habit is topped with densely packed, blue flowers. The long, 16″ flower spikes make for an extended season of bloom.

Description

Easily grown in average, dry to medium, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Best in full sun. Tolerates drought and poor soils. Over time, plants develop slowly expanding clumps with deep and extensive root systems, and should not be disturbed once established. May be grown from seed, but takes several years to establish. Plants take on more of a shrubby appearance and tend to open up after bloom. Trimming or shearing foliage after bloom helps maintain rounded plant appearance and obviates a possible need for staking, but eliminates the developing seed pods which are so attractive.   (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Gardens Plant Finder)
