Elegant Baptisia is one of our loveliest native wildflowers

Baptisia produces tall, elegant spires of flowers that rise in spring, and create a beautiful floral focal point for beds and borders. If you have a space with full sun and fast-draining soil, this is your plant.

There are several wild species including the famous "Wild Indigo." Everyone compares Baptisia to Lupine, and they are somewhat similar, both in the pea family. But the flower spikes of Baptisia are more elegant and airy, and the Baptisia plants are more long-lasting.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
