Maintenance Notes: 

Grows best in full sun and average to poor, well-drained soil. Moderately drought tolerant once established. Very long-lived perennial.

This easy care, drought tolerant, deer resistant perennial is an excellent choice for gardeners looking for low maintenance or native perennials.

An unusually beautiful and unique flower color as well as densely branched foliage set this new variety apart. Deep maroon buds open to bicolor maroon and yellow flowers held on strong scapes above the blue-green foliage in late spring to early summer, followed by decorative seed pods in fall. Secondary branching on the flower stems makes this variety especially floriferous. Well-branched stems form a bushy, upright, spreading mound of foliage that is relatively short for Baptisia. It is a good candidate for the middle of the flower border.

  • I bought one of these, and was so happy with it that I went and bought two more. I am in zone 7, and have all three plants planted in full sun, and in some of the worst clay soil. They have done better than I ever thought they would do, the flowers are beautiful, and am so happy with my purchase. I would recommend these to everyone.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
