A native nitrogen-fixer and pretty little perennial herb to boot!
Also called Utah Sweetvetch, this hardy perennial has a thick taproot that breaks up heavy soils, nutritious leaves that wild game and domesticated livestock love, and flowers beloved by honeybees and other native bees. It is also a crucial component of sage grouse habitat.
Seed in fall or very early spring to help seed break dormancy and sprout as the spring temperatures warm.
Seed grown by College of Western Idaho Biology Club in Nampa, Idaho.
