Observations of the Stark structure of barium for Rydberg states in the region of n=12 are presented. The Stark manifold includes a valence state which perturbs the 1D2 series. General features of the interaction of the valence and Rydberg states in the presence of the electric field are explained by simple arguments based on configuration mixing.
