Cream False Indigo
Baptisia bracteata
Location: Woods edge
This diminutive member of the Indigo group is treasured for its gorgeous clusters of lush cream flowers.The blooming of Cream False Indigo in midspring is a much-anticipated event at Prairie Nursery. Low-growing and compact, it creates a stunning effect when planted in large prairie meadows or small prairie gardens. Slow-growing and very long-lived, some plants at our nursery are nearly 30 years old! Grows in almost any well-drained soil. Does beautifully in full sun or light shade.
