This has long been our favorite of the baptisia species. This collection is from Fannin County, just west of Ector, Texas. The rounded blue-green leaves adorn the 18" tall x 18" wide clumps. In mid- to late April, the clumps are topped with stupendous 12-15" tall spires of pure yellow flowers, followed in late summer by curious spherical tan seed pods. You will love this heat and drought tolerant US native in your perennial border!
