Magnificent cross between two native Baptisias: white wild indigo Baptisia alba, and the yellow wild indigo Baptisia sphaerocarpa. 'Carolina Moonlight' has great hybrid vigor and blooms with spectacular butter yellow flowers atop of lupine-like spikes. Perfect for use in cottage gardens planted with tulips, ornamental alliums and other native perennials. After blooming, spent flowers morph into inflated seed pods which turn black when ripe and are very ornamental.

Baptisia, Carolina Moonlight is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Took A While, But Now - Just Wow! The plants this year are about 18 inches in diameter, and are tall columns of pale yellow flowers. I planted them about 4 years ago as tiny starts. They are behind an Elizabeth Magnolia, which also flowers in pale yellow, and finishes blooming just as the Baptisia begin. The Baptisia leaves are a gorgeous frosted bluish green. With the fantastic height, very long and very upright wands of flowers, these plants have encouraged me to plant other clumps in all the varying shades of yellow available now. Remember that they really can't be moved after planting - long tap roots - so give them room! And time!
