Description How to Grow Delivery

One of a range of innovative new Baptisia australis hybrids that have improved on the species with an exciting palette of intense colours, a long flowering period and a compact habit that suits smaller gardens.

Baptisia 'Decadence Vanilla Cream' forms compact, bushy clumps of blue-green foliage topped with spires of yellow buds that open to creamy-white, lupin-like flowers. From May, the blooms begin to open from the bottom of the spike upwards, reaching a crescendo in late summer. The flowers are followed by decorative black seed pods, extending interest into the autumn. A rewarding perennial for an informal, cottage-style border or prairie planting. The flowers are highly attractive to bees and other beneficial insects making it perfect for wildlife-friendly gardens too. Baptisia 'Decadence Vanilla Cream' thrives in poor, free-draining soils and is drought resistant once established. Height: 90cm (35in). Spread: 75cm (30in).

Pot up Baptisias and grow them on until large enough to plant outdoors. When they well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Grow in light, acid to neutral, well drained soil in full sun. Water regularly until established. 

In autumn, cut down down to the ground. New foliage will emerge in spring. Apply a mulch around the plant in spring every couple of years.
