Description

One step brighter and clearer in its colour than the standard species baptisia, this new hybrid did well in our 2016/17 trial. Baptisias take a while to settle in but are then valuable for their lupin-like flower spikes in early summer, followed by grey-green, verdigris-like foliage domes.

Care Tips

Deadhead to prolong flowering but leave some at the end of summer to develop seed heads for winter decoration. Drought-resistant once established. Prefers not to be disturbed but large clumps may be divided in spring.
