Baptisia edit
 
Baptisia tinctoria
yellow wild indigo
The North American "indigo" (Baptisia) species are often called "false indigo" or "wild indigo" to differentiate them from the Asian indigo plant Indigofera tinctoria, which was cultivated to make blue dye, as was blue false indigo (Baptisia australis).[1]

Yellow wild indigo (Baptisia tinctoria) is considered to be the only New York native of the genus and has been cultivated to make a yellow dye and to repel horseflies.[2][3]

Thermopsis villosa
The herbaceous perennials of genus Thermopsis are generally known as goldenbanners or false-lupines. There are about ten North American Thermopsis species.[1] Of these, onlyThermopsis villosa is known to grow outside of cultivation in New York State. It is native to the southeast but planted as far north as Maine on the east coast and occasionally escapes from cultivation in the northeast.

Lupinus edit
 
Lupinus perennis ssp. perennis
wild lupine, sundial lupine
Lupinus (loo-PIE-nus) is represented by two species of lupine found outside of cultivation in New York, both of which are North American natives.

Sundial lupine (Lupinus perennis) is an eastern native, though it has become rare in the Northeast, including New York, possibly due in part to the reduced frequency of fire.

Bigleaf lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus) is a western native, but its var. polyphyllus has been widely planted as an ornamental and has escaped cultivation in the Northeast, where it is considered invasive.[1] However, it is still rare in most of New York State.

One of the easiest ways to distinguish these two lupine species is by the number of leaflets on their compound leaves. The native L. perennis has 5-7 leaflets on most of its leaves, while the western L. polyphyllus has 11-17 leaflets on most of its leaves.

Tribe Amorpheae edit

The Amorpheae is a tribe of New World faboid legumes, few of which are found in the Northeast.

Amorpha edit
 
Amorpha fruticosa
false indigo-bush
The nativity of false indigo-bush (Amorpha fruticosa) in New York is questionalble. Although it clearly grew south of New York before European settlement, it is not clear how far north its native range extends. It is considered non-native in New England, and even invasive in Connecticut. So, it's likely that many of the New York populations are garden escapes.

Note: [2]
  1. Richard S. Mitchell (1998) "Amendments to the State Checklist I." NYFA Newsletter, Vol. 9 No. 3 indicates that Desmodium glabellum was removed from the New York State Rare Plant List and the Flora Atlas when it was discovered by Troy Weldy (1998) that all New York voucher specimens were actually Desmodium perplexum, a common New York Native. However, Desmodium glabellum is still listed in adjacent states Connecticut, Pennsyvania, and New Jersey. So it seems conceivable that it may be found naturalized somewhere in New York.
    As of Dec-2016, the New York Flora Atlas lists D. glabellum as having been missapplied to D.×humifusum (D. paniculatum × D. rotundifolium).
  2. New York Metropolitan Flora Project (BBG): D. viridiflorumhas "...has been historically reported from unspecified localities in ... Kings Co., NY, but no specimens have been seen."

Vicia edit
The genus name Vicia is generally pronounced ˈvis(h)ēə.[1] Vicia contains about 140 accepted species worldwide, with about 15 taxa appearing outside of cultivation in New York. These are generally known as vetches. Only two of these are thought to be native to this state.

The subgeneric organization of Vicia species used here is based on GRIN Taxonomy.[2]

Senna edit
 
Senna hebecarpa
northern wild senna
Senna is a large and primarily-tropical genus with several hundred species worldwide. But a couple of its small number of North American species occur in New York, and one of these, northern wild senna, is considered to be native to the state. Prior to the publication of Cassia hebecarpa by Fernald in 1937, norhern wild senna was listed in New York as Cassia marilandica, which now (as Senna marilandica) is considered to have never naturalized in New York.[1]

Polygala edit

 
Polygala sanguinea and Polygala polygama
The ten New York native Polygala species are generally known as milkwort, or occasionally as snakeroot. The genus name was derived from the Ancient Greek πολλά (pollá), meaning much, and γᾰ́λᾰ (gála), meaning milk, based on the belief that ingesting the plants causes cows to produce more milk. Even if the belief is valid, it may only apply to Old World species.
