Re: Baptisa

Baptisia australis was one of my first plants.  I loved watching it snake
out of the ground in spring.  I liked it so much that when AHS asked members
to nominate plants for their 75th anniversary list, I wrote in and suggested
it.  They did include it on their "75 Great Plants" list and gave me a copy
of their brown book for nominating it.

We have several Baptisias in our display garden.  We have both Purple Smoke
and Carolina Moonlight.  Our Prairie garden has a few varieties including a
white one, but it's not pendula - don't have my list with me.
