Baptisia arachnifera

Common name cobwebby wild indigo; hairy rattleweed
Family fabaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers yellow
Light sun
From seed scarify, germinate warm
detailed seed-starting info below

Endangered U.S. native species, endemic to just two counties in Georgia. I was happy to see seeds offered through the HPS/MAG seed exchange, donated by Plant Delights Nursery. Now I just hope I can grow the seedlings on successfully - I've had mixed success growing baptisia species to maturity.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
