Baptisia General Information:

From the Decadence® Series, which offers luscious, ultra-colorful flower spikes that adorn the compact, well-branched foliage. A very permanent and arresting perennial with a vase shape. Blue/green foliage on silver stems is topped by soft lupine-like flowers from late spring into summer. The black seedpods can be left on for additional ornamental effect or used in dried arrangements. Extremely long lived, so pick a good spot!

Baptisia Plant Care:

Long-lived and typically trouble-free, Baptisia can be slow to establish but will reach shrub-like proportions. Good in poor soils. Dislikes being moved when mature. Late fall or spring cleanup may be preferred. Cut to 4-6" when foliage blackens with the cold.
