Baptisia sphaerocarpa has loose spikes of vivid yellow, pea-like flowers over leathery yellow green foliage. Also known as Yellow False Indigo, Baptisia sphaerocarpa is distinguished by its round seed pods.
Baptisia sphaerocarpa is native to the southern central United States.
False Indigo prefers full sun and is easily grown in low fertility soil, including clay and dry soil. This perennial's root system resents disturbance once established.
