Little canary-yellow flowers form dense clusters above attractive compound pea-like foliage. According to the USDA, it is not yet known if this leguminous North American native fixes atmospheric nitrogen, as so many legumes do. We do know it attracts butterflies and bees and provides food for hungry wildlife. Develops long slender dark-brown seedpods, beloved by birds.
Plant a hedge of this stately sun-loving plant in the wild meadow—the seed pods burst when ripe, attracting partridge, turkeys and the like.
Plant 2' apart in moist to wet soil. Full sun. Thrives in clay soils but will tolerate sandy or loamy ground. MOFGA-certified organic, grown by Ripley Farm. Z4. Maine Grown. (bare-root crowns)
