  • ** I’m a NA native, but technically not native to NY. I should be used in your garden and not in wild areas.


    I’m a long lived plant that does well in hot, dry soil conditions.


    I’m a legume so contribute nitrogen to the soil.


    I’m loved by many pollinators and am listed as a super food for the Rusty Patched Bumblebee. The Rusty Patch was once a common bumblebee in our area and now considered at risk across its entire  range.
