White Wild Indigo
A branching, shrubby, hairless perennial. Flowers pure white, up to 1 inch long, with the typical 5-petalled "pea flower" configuration (1 banner petal above, 2 wing petals to the sides and 2 fused petals below that form a keel), each flower with its own short stalk, arranged in erect or curved racemes. Blooms May–July. Leaves alternate, all along stems, divided into 3 leaflets; leaflets narrow, oblong, 1-3 inches long, with rounded tips. Stems smooth, covered with a glaucous (gray-white) coating.
