Showy tick trefoil (Desmodium canadense) starter plant (dormant)


Showy tick trefoil Desmodium canadense one year old starter plant. Wonderful sun loving prairie plant. Gets pink flowers in summer. Adds nitrogen to soil. The nectar, seeds, and foliage of this plant are very appealing for a wide variety of insects, birds, and mammals.

These have gone dormant for the season. Most of the native plants we sell need a natural dormancy period and we keep them outside to naturally go through this. The plants you will receive will have yellowing, or little to no foliage left on them, but will have good roots. After planting they will continue to grow more roots so treat them like they were growing even when no foliage is visable.

All of our plants are grown in biodegradable fabric pots. The containers are around 4″x4 1/2″ May be planted in the pot or removed . If you choose to leave it on you may want to tear the sides up to add to the ease of root penetration.
