Baptisia megacarpa is one of the least-known and rarest of the false indigo species. This native to a small region of Georgia, Alabama, and the Florida panhandle, is usually found on semi-open floodplain ridges. In other words, it can tolerate both drought and flooding. Baptisia megacarpa has an arching habit with sparse terminal clusters of pendant yellow flowers in late spring. Many seed-grown plants offered commercially under this name turned out to be mixed hybrids. Our plants are cutting grown, so you're sure to get the correct plant. As with all baptisias, bees are the primarily pollinator.
