This 2018 Plant Delights introduction occurred under the cover of darkness one warm, sultry summer night, when our clumps of Baptisia arachnifera and Baptisia simplicifolia got a bit frisky outside our bedroom window. It was too late when we discovered the liaison, but since the two were more fertile than Octomom, we are putting some of the kids up for adoption in hopes of raising funds to support the rest of the family. As best we can tell so far, the offspring have a mix of traits from both parents. We're guessing they will develop into clumps around 2' tall x 2' wide with yellow axillary flowers in mid-summer.
