This strange Florida Panhandle endemic looks nothing like a baptisia. The thick, glossy-green, eucalyptus-like leaves adorn the 20" tall x 2' wide clump. Strangely, it doesn't emerge from dormancy until late June or early July (late risers are common in FL). B. simplicifolia finally reveals its true identity in late-July when the clumps are topped with short spikes of bright yellow flowers. This is a 'must-have' for fooling know-it-all garden visitors. These are grown from both cuttings and seed from an original cutting-grown plant we collected from the home of the hanging chads, Leon County, FL.
