Growing and Maintenance Tips

All Baptisias are "Plant and Forget" Perennials. They are adaptable to a wide range of soil types but prefer average to dry, well drained soil in full sun. They can handle a couple of hours of shade but will be floppy in too much shade. They tolerate drought and poor soils. Baptisias are very tap rooted and, once established, should not be disturbed. Old foliage should be cut down in the fall because the plant is unattractive once frost hits. Dividing this plant is not recommended.
