9cm pot £8.99

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: well-drained, preferably sandy soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    The Babptisias in the Decadence Series all have a compact habit and will form low shrubby mounds of handsome foliage. It is their pea-like flowers however that they are really sought after. This one can produce 30cm long spikes of yellow buds in spring, which open to soft pink flowers that fade to lavender-pink as they age. Later the seed pods develop and these offer further interest, which lasts well into autumn.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large colonies in early spring if necessary though they are best left undisturbed if you can since they develop deep tap roots which enable them to be more drought tolerant.
