Large showy horizontal spikes composed of soft primrose colored, large, pea-shaped blossoms are produced in early spring providing rich rewards to native pollinators, particularly queen bumblebees. The arching spikes sit along blue-green stems adorned with round, 3-5 foliate leaves that fade to gray as summer wanes. The black grape-like clusters of ripened seed pods offer forage to wildlife like quail and wild turkey or spread the seeds and grow more of this beautiful and long lived native perennial. Long-Bract Wild Indigo is one of the lower growing Baptisias and rarely seems to exceed 18-24" high but may spread to 36" across at maturity. Item# 10870.
