Detailed Description

False Indigo Plant. My impression is that this plant has moved only recently into a very common status withing the Chesapeake Bay area, now found commonly along water edges of the upper Bay and fresh and brackish rivers. Seems to be good for species in Megachilidae. Difficult to photograph because the pollen/stamens are so very bright orange and and the remainder so very dark maroon.
