About This Plant

This newest addition to the Baptisia DECADENCE® series will stop you in your tracks with its intensely vibrant flower color. You’ll enjoy its vivid violet blue blossoms in late spring, around the same time as peonies and COLOR SPIRES® Salvia.

Because of its shorter stature, you will easily find room to fit this perennial in your flower garden. Seed pods begin to develop immediately after the plant is finished flowering, deepening in color and persisting into fall. 

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.
