Baptisia or False Indigo

If you’re wanting a striking perennial that needs minimum care to produce maximum results, take a  look at the False Indigo or Baptisia.  Some also refer to this as “False Lupine”.   A sun to part sun perennial, it will mature to a size of approximately 2′ to 3′ and can  be used as a cut flower.  Place this perennial in the back of your perennial garden.  In late spring or early summer you will have beautiful blooms.  Sequence with summer and fall blooming perennials to have color all season.  


The hummingbirds and butterflies are attracted to the Baptisia.   A prairie plant, Baptisia doesn’t like to be moved, so chose your site carefully.  It will reward you for years to come.  It is almost maintenance free – other than applying a dose of fertilizer once a season, it doesn’t require a lot of other work.  Some gardeners want to remove the seed pods – others will leave them for a contrast in the garden.  Once established, it is quite drought tolerant.

Dwarf Korean Lilac Tree

The Dwarf Korean Lilac is a single trunk dwarf tree.  The prolific blooms are highly fragrant and a light lilac in color. This tree is a beautiful accent plant and  it is smothered in stunning panicles of fragrant flowers  in late spring.

Dwarf Korean Lilac tree

The Dwarf Korean Lilac is a  lollipop-shaped tree that will grace your entryway garden,  can be planted around your patio or can be used in a formal setting or anchoring a cottage garden.   A matching pair will elegantly frame a garden gate, a pathway, or your front door.  Dwarf Korean Lilacs bloom a bit later than common lilacs and has wavy, nickel-sized leaves that won’t mildew like some lilacs will. While only blooming for a few weeks in late spring, once the blooms have gone this tree will provide a look that will complement your landscape all year.

This is our Dwarf Korean Lilac at our home – just a few feet from the front door.  The birds love it all year and the fragrance of the flowers is incredible for these few weeks.  Walking past it makes you want to stop and pull up a chair and just sit for awhile!

We have a limited number of  Dwarf Korean Lilac trees available in two sizes – a smaller size #10 container for $189 and a larger tree in a #25 container that is absolutely gorgeous and will provide definite impact right away for $299.  

Maintenance?   Once every few years, we prune ours back to contain its size in the location we have it.  In a garden set away from the buildings – you may never want to prune yours.  Mature height is approximately 8′ -10′ and width of about 8′.

Arrowhead VII

Blowing and Drifting - Christopher Tassava - Sun, 01/26/2020 - 12:40am

Monday morning at 7:00, I’ll start my seventh Arrowhead Ultra, my seventh attempt to ride my fatbike down the 135 miles of snowmobile trail across northern Minnesota from International Falls to Tower.

Sundogs just after the start of the 2019 Arrowhead

So far I’ve finished the race each time I’ve started, with times ranging from 19.5 hours in 2015 to 29 hours in 2014. My best placing was my first year, when we rode in the polar vortex and I wound up in 7th place.

The forecast (as of Saturday night) looks increasingly good, with highs near 25° on Monday afternoon and lows near 0° at the start and then overnight — which likely means actual air temps near -10°’ when we hit the low swampy areas. Those temperatures are very manageable and should mean the trail will be hard and fast.

This year — after a very busy few months at work and much less riding than I’d like — I’m in less good physical shape than I’d like, although I rode well at the Tuscobia 160 a month ago. I’m primarily gunning for another finish and I’ll be happy to go under 24 hours.

If you want to see how I am doing, check Trackleaders, a cool free service that uses GPS data to plot some (but not all) of us on a map of the course!
