It’s hard to improve on the striking blue blooms of native Baptisia, but ‘Pink Lemonade’ sports unique bicolor flower spikes that take our breath away. In late spring to early summer, soft yellow flowers age to dusty raspberry purple, and both colors appear on the stem at the same time on charcoal stems. With a full, bushy habit, Baptisias are excellent for adding structure in the garden.
Baptisia is easy to grow and will thrive with little maintenance. There are many potential applications in the landscape including meadow plantings, as a backdrop in borders, or as a specimen. Plants are very long-lived once established.
