Baptisia ‘Carolina Moonlight’

Yellow False Indigo

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.095.260

A recent introduction from Rob Gardner of the North Carolina Botanical Garden, this exciting hybrid offers great potential as a specimen plant. It forms a tall, bushy mound of blue-green foliage, with long spikes of soft butter-yellow flowers that resemble Lupines. A good substitute for Lupines, in areas where they are difficult to grow. Makes an excellent cut-flower, and is also attractive to butterflies. Drought tolerant, once established. Plants may be increased by dividing in spring, every 4 to 5 years.
