Baptisia bracteata is often referred to as False Indigo, Longbract Wild Indigo, Plains Wild Indigo, and Cream Wild Indigo. Growing to about 2 feet high, this plant loves to live within the sun or partial shade. It blooms from overdue Spring until the center of the Summer.

This may be a larval host plant for the Wild Indigo Duskywing, and Hoary Edge butterflies. When the Queen Bumblebee comes out of hibernation in overdue Spring she feeds on Baptisia bracteata. This is the reason this plant is so necessary to the bumblebee population.

False Indigo has been known to live over 20 years.

USDA Hardiness Zones 3 to 9.

Always store seeds in a cool, dry, dark place, or in a fridge. Never store them in a freezer as the sudden temperature drop is prone to kill them. Do not leave the seeds in direct sunlight as the warmth generated might kill them.
