More Details

Like a tree-lupin in colour but more compact and easier to fit in a citrus-colour border palette. I love this lemon yellow baptisia growing and arranged with whites and silvers, artichokes, peonies, verbascums and melianthus. The foliage is beautiful too.

Sowing, Seeds, Planting Baptisia grows best in full sun, though it tolerates light shade. If grown in too much shade, plants may require staking. Baptisia is easily grown in poor to average soil that is well-drained. Once established, it is moderately drought tolerant because of its tough, deep taproot. This perennial native may take a couple of seasons to become established, but is very long-lived once mature. Avoid disturbing established clumps.
Care Tips Drought-resistant once established. Leave seed heads for winter display. Mulch in autumn for added protection over winter.
