Sjf -- lovely, but those are of a different species which get much larger. :)

i believe this is what I planted last year in my garden. Actually disappointing because it doesn't have a very long blooming period and nothing much after that. Will be moving it this fall.

Although I love the flower of the Baptisia, it is the foliage that I most enjoy. Several years ago I was given some seeds which I successfully germinated. However, it has taken years for the plants to grow to a sufficient size to be planted in the garden. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a vole doesn't find them before they mature enough to bear flowers.
