Purple Prairie Clover

(Petalostemum purpureum)

Purple Prairie Clover is a perennial native to the Great Plains and adjacent areas. The plant has several branched stems growing to a height of 30.5 to 91 cm (12 to 36 in.) with medium green, compound leaves. The purplish flowers are crowded along elongated cones and bloom from the base to the tip of the cone. The bloom period is from May to July.

Purple Prairie Clover grows on prairies, plains and hills in soils ranging from clay-loams to loamy sands. It usually grows at elevations below 2134 m (7,000 ft.) and exhibits moderate drought tolerance. Drill or broadcast seed 0.6 to 1.3 cm (¼ to ½ in.) deep. Seed should be planted in the fall or pretreated seed may be planted in early spring. Seed should be inoculated before planting on sites where prairie clover has not existed before. Purple Prairie Clover is useful for roadside planting, critical area stabilization and prairie restoration.
