紫色的 prairie clover is a native warm-season perennial legume adapted to all but the eastern tier and western tier states of the United States. 紫色的 prairie clover is a very desirable component of warm-season grass plantings. It is readily grazed by all classes of livestock and is an important food source for upland game birds. It is most abundant in upland sites in sand prairies, hill prairies, and gravel-hill prairies. 紫色的 prairie clover has very showy cylindrical flowers and narrow slender leaves making it a very attractive and non-invasive ornamental plant for the gardens or wildflower plantings.

*Special considerations for spring germination: seed germination can be improved with mechanical scarification. Seed needs to be inoculated with Rhizobium for nitrogen fixation to occur. Germination of scarified seed generally occurs within 2 weeks after planting provided adequate soil moisture and temperature conditions are met.
