Baptisia alba, the elegant White Wild Indigo, with its spikes of creamy-white flowers towering above dense mounds of sea-green foliage will be an attractive accent plant in your wildflower garden. This hardy perennial is drought tolerant and thrives on neglect due to its deep taproot. White Indigo grows in a variety of conditions ranging from dry to moist but prefers a sunny location with rich well-drained soil. Baptisia alba's long spikes of large black seed pods are used in flower arrangements and make it an excellent background for other late-flowering perennials. White Wild Indigo is spectacular alone or planted in small groups.
Baptisia alba is an elegant plant occurring naturally in glades, prairies, stream sides, roadsides, and old fields from Mississippi to Texas, north to Ontario, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Nebraska. Leguminosae (Pea Family) Papilionoideae
Baptisia alba seeds have a hard seed coat, seed 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. Another method is immersing the seeds in hot water (approximately 180 degrees) letting them soak overnight as the water cools. White Indigo seeds can also be planted in fall/early winter and nature will do the necessary seed scarification for spring germination.
The map below shows areas where native baptisia alba plants grow wild but it can be planted and will grow over a much wider area than shown. USDA plant hardiness zones 2 to 9.
