The baptisia in my garden grew out of control this spring, and bloomed profusely (to my utter delight). However, once the blossoms were gone and the seed pods appeared, the stalks flounced all over the place, obscuring neighboring plants. So I pruned the baptisia to about 5 inches. Have I ruined it by cutting it back so early in the summer?
