Common Name: Roundhead Lespedeza
Roundhead Lespedeza is a perennial native species of bush clover that grows on stiff upright stems. It is commonly found in upland woods, thickets and prairies, on glades and along streams, railroads and roadsides. Tiny creamy white, pea-like flowers with a magenta spot at the base bloom in dense, rounded clusters in July to September. Leaves have three narrow to oblong leaflets. Leaflets may be green with little hair to gray-green and hairy depending upon the particular variety or form. The common name, Roundhead Bush Clover, refers to the rounded, clover-like flower heads and the clover-like foliage.
Perhaps best naturalized in prairies, open woodlands, or in conservation plantings.
