I found this beautiful plant. The leaves and blooms look like a type of Fabaceae, but I have not figured out what it is. The plant is about 24-30 (?) inches tall; the stems look purple.

It's growing where construction will take place soon and I'd like to rescue it (with permission of course). Thanks. These are the best images I could get using my phone.

It sure does look a lot like White Wild indigo (Baptisia alba)

Maybe B. Lactea Wild White Indigo
edit to add that the blue stems on B alba do look like a better match.

A map on this page: http://easywildflowers.com/qua... shows a native U.S. white Baptisia. They call it White Wild False Indigo and list it as Baptisia alba a/k/a B. leucantha

Our database shows B. leucantha as a synonym for White Wild Indigo (Baptisia alba var. macrophylla) ) is native: http://easywildflowers.com/qua... and states


Blinking Confused yet? Green Grin!

I was just looking through COL and I think some corrections are in order but i couldn't follow the threads. Shrug!

I was looking at our db vs. COL's listings for B. lactea. They don't agree.

I think I see what you mean. Our database has 3 listings for Baptisia lactea and I wonder if the var. lactea and var. pendula need to be merged into the B. lactea entry?

White Wild Indigo (Baptisia lactea)
White Wild Indigo (Baptisia alba var. macrophylla)
White Wild Indigo (Baptisia lactea var. obovata)

Catalogue of life only shows two accepted names:
Baptisia lactea - Species - accepted name
Baptisia lactea var. obovata (Larisey)Isely - infraspecific taxon - accepted name


The entire Baptisia genus in our database may need looking at; I noticed a few at the CoL that are not currently in our database. @zuzu may be able to help.

The Baptisias are moderated by @KentPfeiffer, and I'm sure he'll update the entries when he hears that they're incorrect.
