Dalea purpurea


Purple Prairie Clover

A native, perennial wildflower that’s a must-have in a sunny meadow-type garden. Rosy-purple thimble flowers bloom atop sprays of delicate foliage in mid-summer. Flowers are a nectar source for pollinators, and the foliage hosts small butterfly and moth species.

The thick, deep taproot makes dalea drought and heat tolerant. Dalea is a nitrogen-fixing plant–an important addition to borders, native gardens, and naturalized areas, as well as prairie restoration.

Full sun. Height 1-3′. Spread 1-1.5′. NATIVE. Zones 3-8.
