I hope to post more pictures in a few days, when the iris series is done, but if I wait ’til then these plants will be done blooming, so go looking for them now. Baptisia australis (Fabaceae) is not often see in Maryland. It likes the bedrock terraces in the Potomac Gorge. Be careful of high, fast-moving water and poison ivy. There isn’t much else blooming now, so the color really stands out.
More pics soon.
