Dalea purpurea - Purple Prairie Clover

The bright purple and gold-flecked flowers of Purple Prairie Clover appear in mid-summer. Stunning when planted with Butterflyweed, Black-eyed Susan and short prairie grasses like Prairie Dropseed, this important legume adds nitrogen to the soil naturally. Dalea purpurea is very drought-tolerant due to its deep taproot and it grows in most well-drained soils.
