July 1, 2015

Baptisia is one of the genera maintained at the OPGC.  This native North American genus consists of approximately 30 species distribued mainly in the Eastern and Southeaster USA.  The collection had originally been developed at the North Central Regional Plant Introduction Station in Ames, Iowa, but has since be transferred to the OPGC.  Recently, the last shipment of seeds were received and curation of the collection moves forward.
