Purple Smoke Baptisia is an upright perennial native with clover-like grey-green foliage on charcoal stems.  The slightly arching raceme sporting smokey lavender flowers extend well above the foliage in mid-spring.  The blooms give way to large seedpods that blacken when ripe, providing ornamental interest.  'Purple Smoke' is a tough, drought-tolerant plant that grows best with acidic well-drained soils.  Its abundant flowers are excellent pollination and butterfly attractors.

Within a few days of our order, we had beautiful, healthy plants delivered to our yard. Talk about a pleasant surprise to have everything we asked for unloaded and waiting for us when we were ready to plant without having to leave the house.

An amazing resource for plants, advice and landscape expertise. ServScape designed a rooftop garden for me which included the design, sourcing the planting materials, and installation, including a small irrigation system.
