We are thrilled to be able to finally offer certified wild collected plants of B. pendula via seed grown from a Neuse River population in Wayne Co., NC, found by our former production manager Al Glen. This superb southern species is distinguished from other white baptisias by its large stalks of blackened, drooping seed pods. B. alba var. alba (pendula) emerges in spring to make a large 3' tall x 4' wide mound of blue-green pea-like foliage. In late spring, the clumps are topped with 1-2' tall spikes of pure white flowers, followed by the unique seed pods. B. alba var. alba makes a great substitute for its more finicky relatives, the lupines.
