Description / Baptisia Decadence® 'Lemon Meringue' False Indigo

Tall wands of clear yellow on charcoal-black stems fill the spring and summer air on this glorious Proven Winners® cultivar. A compact, beautifully colored Baptisia 'Lemon Meringue' also known as false indigo is part of the Decadence® series developed by premier breeder Hans Hansen. We think you'll love its performance in your garden.

Just 3 feet high and 2½ to 3 feet wide, this neat perennial begins flowering in late spring in most climates, continuing into summer. The pea-like blooms are followed by showy seedpods that last into fall, adding another season of beauty to the display. Lush blue-green foliage keeps the entire plant attractive from spring until frost.

Best in full sun or light shade, 'Lemon Meringue' is a very adaptable and easy to grow plant. It was bred from hybrids of native species in Oklahoma and Texas, and is ideal for either the garden or container. The result of more than a decade of breeding, it is an absolute top performer. You will love it.
