Life Cycle
Baptisia, Midnight Prairieblues is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from very easy to grow and divides beautifully. This plant was purchased about 6 years ago and never knew it's name, we always called it Mr Lucky, because we felt so lucky to have it. It's a beauty. Our "midnight blues" are planted along a fence facing east. Just plant and forget it. I never ever even watered it ever. Just let mother nature take over.
