Ensure you provide your plant with enough room to grow, spacing it at least 92cm (3ft) away from surrounding plants and shrubs. Water thoroughly when first planted and in periods of dry weather.
Once established, Baptisia require very little attention. If your plant is situated in an area of part shade, then you may need to stake the stems to prevent sprawling. Use a generic garden fertiliser annually to encourage further health and growth. Baptisia are best left undisturbed where they can thrive.
It is possible to propagate Baptisia by ripe seed sown in pots in a cold frame. Alternatively, you can propagate by division in early spring, however, take extreme care as it may caused damage to the plant due to it not liking disturbance.
