Purple Prairie Clover
About This Plant
Sun. One of the most widespread of the perennial prairie-clovers, identifiable by the cone-like flower heads.
Purple prairie-clover is among the earliest species to take hold in disturbed soils; it is used in various revegetation projects thanks to its nitrogen-fixing abilities. The taproot may grow up to six feet in length, making the plant drought-tolerant. Keep it if you have it; it may also be found in specialty native nurseries.
Scarify seeds before sowing. Mow lightly to increase density.
