Amorpha (Prairie Shoestring) & Lespedeza (Buschclover)

Leadplants or Prairie Shoestrings and Bushclovers are semi-woody perennials to woody small shrubs with ornamental feathered leaves and axillary to terminal spikes of white, rose or purple flowers. Most Amorpha species are native of open grasslands, such as the tall-grass regions and prairies in North America. They prefer a very well drained, slightly sandy or rocky soil and are best planted in full sun. Lespedza species are winterhardy species from Asia and grow in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot.
Sow flat in any well drained, preferably sandy soil. Keep pots in a sheltered spot outside during winter. Transplant young root stock after leaves have withered in late summer to early autumn.
All are USDA Climate Zone 6.
