Dark Chocolate' features very dark, nearly black, charcoal-purple flowers on flower spikes that grow up to 27" long! The Flowers appear well above the foliage and create a very nice display in the garden. Easy to grow and requires little maintenance, but does require patience as Baptisia take a couple of years to really establish themselves in the landscape. Ornamental seed pods create fall interest. The DECADENCE® Series features varieties selected for their desirable flower colors and shorter, more compact habit.
