Description

Baptisia x minor 'Lemon Meringue' forms an upright, vase-shaped mound of blue-green foliage that is topped with long, charcoal stems of lemon yellow flowers in late spring. The contrast between stem and blooms is striking. Also known as Dwarf False Indigo, 'Lemon Meringue' is small enough to fit into most gardens and is rapidly becoming a favorite perennial for landscapers.

Baptisia minor is native to the central and south central United States, where it is typically found on grasslands, in openings in rich woods and thickets and along open stream banks.

Baptisia x minor 'Lemon Meringue' prefers sun and average to dry sites. It is easily grown in low fertility soil, including clay. Its deep, tap root system resents disturbance once established.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
