Help me with this crazy plant

ddkgJuly 14, 2014

What on earth is this bush? This grows like crazy and I think it has seeds that automatically have it spread across the yard.

Is it worth keeping or removing? My gardener removed so many of them. But they keep growing in different places.

Thanks so much.

Looks to me like Baptisia, False Indigo. But mine doesn't self-seed at all, so maybe not.

Here is a link that might be useful: false indigo

Looks like some kind of Thermopsis,
did you ever see it flower?
A better photo would help, and one of the flower even more :-)

And here is the third picture. So the seeds are encapsulated just like peas :).

Any other ideas on what this could be?

Thanks a ton!!

ottawavalleygardener: IT is the baptisa you mentioned. When I looked at the pics, the flowers and the seeds matched. I now remember there were flowers in early spring :)

This one rapidly spreads though.

Thanks :)
