    DEER RESISTANT! Baptisa Also called false indigo for the rich blue shade of its flowers, this hardy perennial fills the spring garden with elegant spires of pealike blooms. It withstands drought -- and deer, rabbits, and other critters leave it alone. The bluish-green foliage looks great all summer long, and the charcoal-black seedpods create fun contrast in fall. Name: Baptisia australis Zones: 3-8

    Baptisa-I have it, pretty shades of blue, pods are interesting but they should be cut off before they open and cultivate new flowers. Perennial

'Dutch Chocolate' Baptisia an exotic choice for late-spring gardens. This new baptisia is one of the colorful Decadence series. Flowers are dark brown with purple tinges, and they're stunning in spring flower arrangements. Long sprays of blooms stay in flower for a long time in the garden. Plant this 3-foot-tall baptisia in the back of the border.

Catmint-Catmint is an often-overlooked perennial that's worth growing because it's virtually indestructible and has gorgeous blue flowers. Catmints come in a variety of heights from 6-inch-tall dwarfs to 3-foot-wide mounds of silvery blue. They emerge early in the spring and rebloom readily if deadheaded

Amsonia A tough, but sadly underused perennial, amsonia produces clusters of sky-blue flowers in late spring. It's not just a one-season wonder, though. In autumn, its foliage turns brilliant shades of gold -- enough to rival many of the trees when they put on their fall finery. Name: Amsonia tabernaemontana Conditions: Full sun and well-drained soil Size: To 2 feet tall I want some of this for the front yard!
