  • I’m native to NY state and Tompkins County, NY.

    My palm shaped leaves and generous blooms make me an attractive addition to the drier garden.

    I'm a host plant of the endangered Karner Blue butterfly.

    I'm a legume.

    My seedpods explode to help in seed dispersal. 

    Birds and small mammals will eat my seed.
