Need a hybrid perennial that is incredibly sought after by landscape designers? Better yet, how about a polished Proven Winners® ColorChoice® modern cultivar? With the Decadence® Deluxe Pink Lemonade False Indigo (Baptisia 'Pink Lemonade'), you will enjoy a juicy feature that works hard all year!

The dense fountains of blue-green foliage grow up and out into a refined vase shape! Then the flowering spires appear in late spring and last through early summer producing masses of light lemony yellow and sweet pink blooms with violet to purple accents that stand out against the charcoal stems! The pea-shaped flowers rise high above the mounded foliage to create an incredibly colorful display!

False Indigo makes a great choice to support plenty of beneficial pollinators who will be enticed to come visit your berry bushes and veggie plants in your Victory Garden and Pollinator Border! Highly floriferous, you'll not have to worry about depriving your bees when you snip a few stems to create romantic cut flower arrangements!

The Decadence® series of Baptisia is a deliciously beautiful line of flowering ornamentals! Decadence® Deluxe Pink Lemonade False Indigo are durable, long-lived perennials! They work well across much of the USDA hardiness zones 4 to 9! Growing tall when in bloom, the vertical spires can reach 4-5 feet! Pink Lemonade spreads into upright fountains 3-4 feet wide to create a gorgeous, tidy display!

Planting and Application:

Professional designers use these incredible plants in many styles! The streamlined growth is tidy enough for a contemporary formal landscape design! The Baptisia's lush, organic good looks are pure perfection during their season, so plant them in a prominent position where you'll relish their impeccable, lavish display every day. Layer them as a showy display in front of taller trees and shrubs.

Retaining their native resilience, Baptisia works in rustic settings, Rock Gardens, and Xeric plantings, but romantic beauty to your Cottage Gardens and Cutting Borders! Every garden becomes a Pollinator Border with these dramatic Pink Lemonade stands set up for the bees! Follow their cue to create a spectacular new focal point.

Use them to gently boost the visual appeal of your existing landscaping. Or start afresh to decorate a blank slate. Deluxe Pink Lemonade is also an incredible backdrop for smaller perennials and shrubs when it's not in bloom! Weave these perennials into the mid-zone of your garden design. Your choices will depend on your personal style.

Use Baptisia in the ground, or keep them as "Thrillers" in outdoor containers! Make your backyard a summer paradise, or brighten up your balcony. A single plant is a dramatic specimen but groupings and rows of Baptisia create a gorgeous hedge! You'll love the outstanding impact they make in a mass planting or low hedge.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Field-tested for many years by the Proven Winners® team, Decadence® False Indigo flowers in full sun or partial shade! A great choice for experienced gardeners and beginners alike, carefree False Indigo flowers in at least four hours of sunlight a day. These Perennials prefer well-drained soil.

All plants appreciate a 3-4 inch layer of mulch over the root system whether they are in the ground or planters. Keep your plants healthy and stress-free with regular water their first year, but these deep-rooted plants can be drought-tolerant once established. We recommend a consistent schedule of supplemental water during their first year in the ground.

Each year, your plant will produce new growth and flowers from the crown! Deadhead after the flowers fade to clean up the mounds, and in early spring, simply prune them to the ground. Though deeply rooted, you can carefully divide these plants every 3-5 years to maintain their vigor if they seem to be struggling. Site them in a permanent spot, as their long tap roots resent being moved.

  • High Performance In Full Sun or Partial Shade
  • Versatile & Adaptable to Most Well-Drained Soils
  • Low Maintenance & Low Moisture Once Established
  • Salt & Drought Tolerant, Rabbits & Deer Don't Prefer the Taste
  • Deadheading Not Required & Prune Early Spring

With luscious bi-color flowers, pretty foliage, and tidy form, you will fall in love with the special charm of the Proven Winners® Decadence® Deluxe Pink Lemonade False Indigo in your garden! Place your order today with Nature Hills Nursery!
