(syn: B. pendula) This is the hard-to-find Southern form of white baptisia, distinguished from other white baptisias, by its large blackened, drooping seed pods. B. alba var. alba emerges in spring to make a large 3' tall x 3' 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.
