About Baptisia: Baptisia is an American native with many new cultivars and colors that are easy to grow. It's not prone to insects or disease. Planted alone as a focal point or mid to back border, its lupine-like flowers attract butterflies. A first time gardener would enjoy it as much as a seasoned gardener.
