About Clover Seeds - Purple Prairie

Dalea purpurea

Seed Type Open Pollinated Seed
Plant Type Legume

The word clover might bring to mind leafy lawns and good luck charms, but Prairie Clover more closely resembles lavender than anything else. The purple spikes add texture and a pop of color to your planting space, and when cut, make a lovely bouquet filler. This native wildflower is a natural legume—just like garden peas and beans, Prairie Clover fixes nitrogen in the soil, making it an excellent companion plant and cover crop. Not only that, but Eden Brothers’ Prairie Clover provides ample habitat for native butterflies and produces food for endangered pollinators.
