Tribe Thermopsideae[edit]

The North American "indigo" plants 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 Baptisia australis.[1] Baptisia tinctoria was also cultivated to make a yellow dye and to repel horseflies.[2]

Genus Crotalaria[edit]

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 Genisteae[edit]

Many of the Genisteae are known generally as brooms.

Genus Lupinus[edit]

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.

Genus Amorpha[edit]

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.

  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.

Tribe Trifolieae[edit]

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.

Genus Medicago[edit]

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

Genus Senna[edit]

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 itself. 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 be rare, if at all present in New York.[1]

Family Polygalaceae[edit]

Of the Polygalaceae (milkwort family), only the genus Polygala, with about twelve taxa, is 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 Polygaleae[edit]

Genus Polygaloides[edit]

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]
