In Texas this is one of the most common of the native baptisias, but it is still one of the least known in cultivation. Instead of behaving like its brothers, this unique baptisia holds its stunning creamy white flowers in long horizontal racemes in very early spring. B. leucophaea is best planted on a mound or at the top of a wall where the flowers can be best appreciated. This collection from Highway 138, about 1 mile east of Garrison, TX, was growing near a patch of B. sphaerocarpa. The seed pods looked a bit intermediate so we are hoping for a hybrid between the two.
