Flower Native American Pea Partridge 500 Non-GMO, Heirloom Seeds
Cloudless Giant Sulphur, Orange Sulphur, Little Yellow, and Sleepy Orange Butterflies all use the plant as their larval food. The seeds that form in the flat bean pod are an important source of food for game birds like dove and quail, as well as for songbirds.
The roots have nitrogen-fixing properties that enhance the soil that they are growing in. Over-all, this is one of our best habitat plants.
The Partridge Pea is easily grown in sandy or loamy soils, as long as they are well drained. Though they germinate in late spring, be sure to plant them in the fall. They need to over-winter in the ground. Blooms from June to October. For best results, plant in the fall. Germination rate about 70% or better.
