Wild White Indigo (or False-Indigo)


Reissue from end of May last year

Wild White Indigo, or False Indigo
Baptisia Alba

Dena Gets the gold star for helping me identify this plant. I knew that it was a Legume (ie member of the Fabaceae (pea) family, but I had it as part of the Lupine genus. Turns out to be a part of the Baptisia family

Kingdom: Plantae
Division: Magnoliophyta
Class: Magnoliopsida
Order: Fabales
Family: Fabaceae
Genus: Baptisia

Species: B. alba

(more later)

Kirk, your photos are fabulous, but I wanted to contact you for other reasons. If I may ask: are you a Creationist, because I believe in that literal meaning of the Bible. My blog is http://threeswans.blogspot.com if you want to visit and comment. And I was going to say - you read a lot by the list of books you include. So do I. Can I share with you about the Christian novel I wrote? It is called "Outcasts Of Skagaray". If you would like a free preview, go to www.threeswans.com.au and check the sample chapters. I would love it if you read and enjoyed it, but in any event, I greet you in the Lord Jesus.
