There are so many blues (and pinks, but that's for another day) blooming in my garden right now~the baptisia is spectacular and I have been taking so many pictures! This is definitely one of my favorite and most reliable perennials. I have had it for many, many years and it blooms beautifully every year. It's big--4 feet--and takes up a fair amount of space in my garden, but I like its nice sweet pea-like, blue-green foliage that looks good even after it finishes blooming. I usually cut mine back by about a third after it blooms, to control the size. It's blooming right now with the herbaceous peonies and they are a beautiful combination.
