June 14, 2015: Prairie False Indigo

Prairie False Indigo (Baptisia leucantha) can be found in the prairie areas of the Park.  This plant is a member of the pea family (Fabaceae).  The green pods will eventually turn black. 6/13/15 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
[Plant names change more frequently than those for birds.  In the USDA-NRCS Plants Database, the above name is now a synonym for White False Indigo (Baptisia alba var. macrophylla).]
