More info about our plant sizes.


Pea-type cream-yellow flowers form large, lush, cascading, lupinesque spikes that bloom April to June. They're pollinated by bumblebees, digger bees, mason bees, butterflies, and moths! Pollinator plant par excellence! Notable seed pods develop in late summer. 1.5' T x 3' W, and doesn't like to be transplanted due to its long taproot. A native of midwestern U. S. prairies and dry, open woods, it would appreciate our NW oak savanna habitat or a low-maintenance section of your garden. Rarely offered species! Also goes by Baptisia bracteata, Baptisia bracteata var. glabrescens, Baptisia leucophaea, Baptisia leucophaea var. glabrescens
