Baptisia 'Plum Rosy' PPAF (25) Bare Root Plants
Common Name: False Indigo
A beautifully elegant bicolor Baptisia that bursts onto the scene in late spring to early summer. Newest flowers open mauve pink and lighten to near white with age. Both flower colors are present on the stem for a beautiful bicolor effect. Use in place of a shrub for a statement piece in the garden. A long lived and drought tolerant perennial.
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.
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. This perennial native may take a couple of seasons to become established but is very long-lived once mature. Avoid disturbing established clumps.
