Baptisia bracteata is also known as Baptisia leucophaea, Cream Wild Indigo, and Long Bracted wild indigo. Baptisia bracteata is a spectacular specimen in the flower garden. The blue-green foliage resembles a small rounded bush. Drooping spikes of creamy yellow flowers bloom below the foliage in May or June and turn into large charcoal black seed pods in late summer that are used in flower arrangements. cream Wild Indigo has a deep taproot which permits it to withstand dry conditions and heat. It makes a nice backdrop in the perennial garden.
Baptisia bracteata var. leucophaea is a multipurpose plant that occurs naturally in limestone and dolomite glades, prairies and along roadsides in the Ozarks. Leguminosae (Pea Family) Papilionoideae
Cream Wild Indigo has a hard seed coat, germination will be improved after a pretreatment of scarification. Scrape the seed coats with a file, or rub the seeds between 2 sheets of coarse sandpaper. Baptisia seeds planted in fall/early winter should not need a pretreatment for spring germination.
