Baptisia 'Lemon Meringue' has beautiful flowers and blue-green foliage that forms a nice vase shape. In late spring to early summer, lemon yellow flowers cover the charcoal stems. The contrast between the bright flowers and dark stems is quite striking. The blue-green foliage makes a nice backdrop for the interesting flowers. The blossoms eventually give way to ornamental seed pods that extend the attraction into the fall.

Homeowner Growing Tips: Easy to grow in average to poor soil that is well-drained. Best in full sun, but it will tolerate light shade. If grown in too much shade it will need to be staked. Moderately drought tolerant once established, which may take a couple of seasons. Cut back in spring, or whenever it gets flattened by autumn or winter weather. A long-lived plant; avoid disturbing the clump once established.
