In our trials, Baptisia 'Lunar Eclipse' stood out as one of the most unique baptisias we've grown, and in our opinion, the star of Jim Ault's baptisia breeding at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The four way combination of genes from Baptisia australis, alba, leucophaea, and sphaerocarpa produced a superstar. Baptisia 'Lunar Eclipse' forms a sturdy 3' tall x 3' wide clump, topped, starting for us, in early to mid-May with spikes held above the foliage, and lined with large creamy-white flowers, that age to blue-lavender. The bicolor transition is absolutely magical...a breeding breakthrough in the genus baptisia. Baptisia 'Lunar Eclipse' grows equally fine in xeriscapes or as a pond-edge marginal.
