When most Baptisias are done blooming, the Small Yellow Wild Indigo is in full flower. A great shrub-like perennial for a landscape setting.   The small flowers produce just one seed per pod unlike other Indigos, which will produce many in each pod.  Other Common Names in use: Yellow False Indigo.

This is a legume species (member of the pea family).  Most legumes harbor beneficial bacteria called rhizobia on their roots.  Prairie Moon provides genus-specific strains of this bacterium called inoculum for legume seed free of charge with the purchase of legume seed.  To properly inoculate your legume seed prior to planting, follow germination code I below.
