Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Great Native Plant: Baptisia
Distinguishing traits. Spikes of pastel blooms in mid to late May attract beneficial native bees (which are better pollinators than honeybees). In spring the emerging spikes look like asparagus, and in fall the seedpods are both ornamental and rattle gently for added sensory interest. Baptisia's size makes it similar to a shrub, but it has the quick growth of a perennial flower.

Baptista or Wild Blue Indigo grows in sandy soil where shrubs will not. Bright purple blooms emerge in the spring. 3-4" tall and wide.

I bought this plant and the squirrels dug it up as soon as it was in the ground-- what a bummer! Will try again when I get the front garden barrels placed and see if it is safer there!
