I don't really know but it reminds me of Crotalaria, commonly called "Rattlebox".

Baptisia tinctoria?

http://www.ct-botanical-society.org/galleries/baptisiatinc.h...

It's a little to the north of Florida but not far, the leaves on the USDA look a little different but most others fit. I'm not sure about the fowers.

I've looked at almost everything in Fabeacea.

Notice the two types of leaves on Baptisia calycosa var. villosa, which is in Florida but only just. I can't find pics of flowers!

To me, too; and I noticed that some of their blooms often have red coloration as well as yellow.

Lots of flowers in this family look similar, I have Cytisus and they have very small hairy leaves, flowers are quite different too but there's variations between species in most generea.

An update on this one....I E-mailed pictures to the master gardener at our county extension office...they (the MGs) are volunteers and only there on Friday. I got a reply today, but I was too late to talk to him. Anyway...from the pics he thinks it is a native orchid, somewhat rare and protected, but as of this morning could not pin it down exactly. He had some questions...I E-mailed back, but likely won't hear back until next week. Envited him out to take a looksee if so inclined, which would be awsome as there are so many wildflowers here "just doing there thing" Bill is a happy camper...no cutting the yard till I hear something Whistling Hilarious!

This morning while dragging hoses, I noticed that my mystery plant does indeed get pods that look like pea pods. They are smooth rather then hairy. I opened one that wasn't ripe (still green) about 1/2 inch long...it contained 2 "peas" that looked to be speckled.

I didn't buy the native orchid, I don't know how anyone could call it an orchid unless I've lost my marbles. Shrug! Hilarious!

What can I say Shrug! Went back through the links and spent some time on google this morning. Would still like to give this baby a proper name, but just am not happy with what I've seen so far Blinking

My eyesight isn't what it used to be but it still reminds me of Crotalaria of some sort.

Thanks for the links Lin...I had already gotten an ID for rabbit bells and added it to the DB. This one however is making me crazy. None of the pics I've seen so far show the rusty color on the back of the bloom. GRRR

@KentPfeiffer I have looked at the links already posted more then once, but still am not convinced with what I've seen. Do you have any suggestions?

It appears to be a Crotalaria, but I don't know which one. There are quite a few species in Florida, and it's hard to find good pictures of most of them. Maybe Crotalaria pumila? Shrug!

It still reminds me of Crotalaria, maybe C. spectabilis or C. pumila:

OK....I am now a happy camper. I had not seen the rust color on the back of the bloom before in other pictures, but the link Lin posted for Crotalaria pumila does show it and the leaves look to be right also I tip my hat to you. Thumbs up Green Grin! Thank you Lin and Kent

I thought the leaves and blooms looked like Crotalaria from the get-go but I'm bad at trying to compare photo's ... so many plants look alike.
