Baptisia arachnifera is the most unique member of the genus. Each 2' tall x 5' wide clump is adorned with clasping, silvery-grey, eucalyptus-like, hairy leaves. Baptisia arachnifera is a compact grower for a special spot in the rock garden and is topped with short terminal spikes of yellow flowers, starting for us in early July...long after most other baptisias have finished flowering. Baptisia arachnifera is also late to emerge in spring, so don't get worried when it's not the first thing out of the ground. Despite being nursery propagated from seed here at Plant Delights, this federally endangered, coastal Georgia native cannot be shipped outside of NC due to misguided Federal regulations, so you'll have to visit and pick yours up in person.
