Baptisia sphaerocarpa ‘Screamin’ Yellow’

Summary

Baptisia sphaerocarpa ‘Screamin’ Yellow’ is one of the most floriferous cultivars in our trial. Although it’s difficult to get an accurate count, we estimate ‘Screamin’ Yellow’ produces as many as 350 inflorescences on a single plant. This overwhelming quantity makes up for its slightly shorter-than-average inflorescences. In addition to the floral display, ‘Screamin’ Yellow’ has beautiful, bluish foliage that creates a rounded, medium-sized habit and remains dense and sturdy all season long.
