We have yet to have anyone identify this strange Florida Panhandle endemic as a baptisia. The thick glossy-green eucalyptus-like leaves adorn this 2' wide, deer-resistant perennial...not surprising that after living in Florida for the last 60 million years its skin got a bit tough. Interestingly, Baptisia simplicifolia doesn't emerge from dormancy until late May or early June (late risers are common in Florida). Baptisia simplicifolia finally reveals its true identity in mid-July when the clumps are topped with short spikes of yellow flowers. Our plants are seed-grown from a plant from Leon Co. Florida (home of the famous hanging chads).
