Did anyone say it looks like Smooth rattlebox (Crotalaria pallida var. obovata)?

the flowers look close, so do the trifoliate leaves...

Christine...I have looked at crotalaria which is I think going in the right direction, but not there yet. Picture #6 in the link you posted is the closest "match" I've seen so far....BUT the blooms on mine are all along the stem rather then on a "bloom stalk"....seed pods the same...along the stem rather then in a bunch. Guess close only counts in horseshoes GRRRRR

It kind of looks like a wild orchid to me. Have absolutely no idea though. It seems like my sister gave me some flowers to try to identify once and this kind of looks like one of them. Good luck with this one.

What about Baptisia Tinctoria? Commonly know as wild indigo (horseflyweed, yellow false indigo)? The leaves really look like it.

I have a book called "Wildflowers of the Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains". When I was looking up m sister's wildflowers, I came across this one and that is why yours looked so familiar.

Still no luck so far. One other person also suggested some sort of wild orchid.

Just wondering if you had checked out the Yellow Wild Indigo suggestion. Here is a picture from a Duke University teacher's wildflower site. I think it looks like what you have.

Here is the link to the page: http://www.duke.edu/~jspippen/plants/baptisia.htm

Yellow Wild Indigo (Baptisia tinctoria)
Person Co., NC 13 June 2006
Showy yellow flowers blooming from spring to fall, this species is uncommon to fairly common in various dry-soils habitats across the state. It's the most common Baptisia in NC and is recognized by its small leaflets, small flowers, & small fruits. Wild Indigos are caterpillar host plants for a few butterflies including Frosted Elfin and Wild Indigo Duskywing.

Vickie...where I'm having a problem is that leaves and seed pods look good on several suggestions, but so far I haven't really been happy with the images of the blooms Shrug! silly thing needs to be "born" with a nametag Whistling Hilarious!
