Baptisia alba


White False Indigo

USDA Zone: 4-9

Plant number: 1.095.100


(=Baptisia pendula) This is a cousin to the Lupine, with similar spikes of pea-like flowers in late spring. Native to the South-eastern USA, White False Indigo is a sturdy, long-lived plant, although it takes a few years to reach mature size. This species is a real beauty, with white flowers contrasting against charcoal-grey stems. Blue-green foliage forms a sturdy, upright mound. Flowers are excellent for cutting. Plants will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, from moist to dry. Also tolerates summer heat and humidity. Seed pods are interesting for dried flower arrangements.
