Amorpha canescens

Family: Pea (Leguminosae)

Lifespan: Perennial

Height: 1-3' (0.3-1 m)

Flower Color: Purple

Flower Size: N/A

Bloom Season: N/A

Fruit: N/A

Conditions: Dry plains, hillsides, prairies, open woodlands, shaded ravines, and roadsides

Sunlight: Full Sun

Moisture: Drought tolerant, but is most productive in areas with 18 to over 20 inches (46-51 mm) MAP (Mean Annual Precipitation).

Low-growing; Nutrient-poor soil restricts legginess. The deep, branched, woody root system extends to a depth of 6.5 to 16.5 feet (2.1-5.3 m), with few laterals in the upper 2 to 3 feet (0.6-0.9 m) of soil. This greatly minimizes competition with grasses for water and nutrients.
