Family FabaceaeEdit

The Fabaceae (pea, bean or legume family) in New York has about 50 native or naturalized genera, together comprising about 150 taxa found growing outside of cultivation.[F 1]

Subfamily BrachystegioideaeEdit

Tribe CercideaeEdit

CercisEdit

Despite its specific epithet, redbud (Cercis canadensis) is probably not native quite as far north as New York, but it will naturalize in some locations in the state.

Tribe ThermopsideaeEdit

BaptisiaEdit
 
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]

CrotalariaEdit

Although common rattlebox (Crotalaria sagittalis) is considered to be Endangered in New York, where it is at the northern edge of its natural range, it is listed as a noxious weed in parts of the South.

Tribe GenisteaeEdit

Many of the Genisteae are known generally as brooms.

LupinusEdit
 
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 AmorpheaeEdit

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

AmorphaEdit
 
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."

Tribe TrifolieaeEdit

The Trifolieae contains primarily the clovers, sweetclovers, and alfalfa in New York. None of these plants are considered to be native to the state, and very few are native to North America.
MedicagoEdit
 
Medicago lupulina

Medicago (medick) includes the common forage crop alfalfa (Medicago sativa) along with clover-like weeds such as black medick (Medicago lupulina).

SennaEdit
 
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]

The endangered Kentucky coffeetree, Gymnocladus dioicus, is a possible pre-European introduction to New York. It is the only species of its genus native to North America. The other two Gymnocladus species are native to Asia.

  1. Although listed as native, the Kentucky coffeetree may have been introduced to New York by Native Americans. Some populations are clearly human introductions.NYFA

Family PolygalaceaeEdit

Of the Polygalaceae (milkwort family), only the genus Polygala, with about a dozen taxa, and Polygaloides, with a single species, are found outside of cultivation in New York. All of these taxa are native to the region, but many are rare or presumed extirpated.[F 2]

Tribe PolygaleaeEdit

PolygaloidesEdit

 
Polygala paucifolia
gaywings, fringed milkwort
In 2011, John Richard Abbott segregated fringed milkwort (Polygala paucifolia) from the rest of Polygala, placing it in the currently-unused genus Polygaloides.[1][2]

PolygalaEdit

 
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.
