30 - 36 in. Sun Early Summer Yellow 3 - 8

In early summer, 10” long spikes of caramel brown flowers with yellow keels are borne on a bushy, rounded clump. The intense brown color does not fade to yellow as some other bicolor varieties do - remained in bloomed after other varieties were long past peak. This extremely long-lived perennial could be used instead of a shrub in landscape settings, with minimal care required to thrive year after year.


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. Slow to get started but form a very long lasting clump. Does not like to be disturbed. Emerges late in the spring.
