Pink Lemonade Baptisia

Description
Ignored until recently by many gardeners and landscapers, Baptisia is now the focus of breeders and definitely deserves a second look. This sun-loving perennial makes a beautiful statement at the back of a mixed border or as an exotic cut flower in a fresh-cut floral arrangement. Pink Lemonade, a bold variety from the DECADENCE® DELUXE series, is the first bicolor in the series. Its soft yellow blooms mature to dusty raspberry purple, and both colors appear simultaneously on the unique charcoal-hued stems. This bold plant has a full, bushy growth habit, giving the garden flowering textural contrast. It can also be used like a small shrub, to serve as an anchor in the large perennial border. Butterflies love Baptisia and will visit the landscape regularly. Deer resistant. Baptisia 'Pink Lemonade' PPAF

  • Unique CharactersticsPerennial Resource: When you have so many colorful members of the DECADENCE® Baptisia, it's hard to imagine a new hue! However, 'Pink Lemonade' does just that with its unique bicolor flower spikes, the first bicolor of the series. 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. Charcoal stems really make the colors pop. Forms an incredibly full and bushy habit-a perfect substitution for shrubs if you're looking for structure in the garden. 'Pink Lemonade' is part of a subgroup DECADENCE® DELUXE, a reference to its taller, vase-shaped habit. It joins 'Pink Truffles', a solid pink counterpart. 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. The roots of the DECADENCE® series run deep-14 years deep to be exact. What started as a fun botanizing trip in the lower Midwest with a fellow botanist blossomed into a complex hybridizing project for breeder Hans Hansen. For over a decade, Hansen made countless crosses with many native Baptisia species he had collected across Texas and Oklahoma. These crosses resulted in an array of seedlings with unique flower colors and plant habits. Only the very best have made it into the new DECADENCE® Series, which includes varieties selected for their desirable flower colors and shorter, more compact habit.
