A smaller Baptisia species, that sends up yellow blooms in midsummer, a little later than the other Wild Indigos. Compact, drought resistant, and a nice fit if you are growing several of these native legumes to extend your bloom period. Like most plants in this species, it is a host to the Wild Indigo Duskywing butterfly and the Clouded Sulfur butterfly. Traditionally the plant was used as medicine in a variety of ways for its antiseptic, immunostimulant properties and to treat lymph issues, a worthy candidate for the home apothecary garden.
