Baptisia bracteata

Common name: Cream Wild Indigo

Native plant

Shrub-like in appearance, this plant is occassionally branched but has a very wide spread to its stems.  Racemes have such a large abundance of cream flowers that they sometimes sprawl across the ground.  It is an early bloomer, offering a food source to newly emerging bees in the spring, and it is very showy.  Its nectar is a great food source for many insects.
