Astragalus lentiginosus var. palans

Common name freckled milkvetch; spotted locoweed
Family fabaceae
Life cycle tender perennial?
Size 12-18"
Light sun-part shade

Hardiness of this plant (and even its perennial status) is unclear from what I've been able to find. I hope it blooms for me, because I'm curious to see its purple/white flowers, as well as the curiously inflated seed pods that follow. Leaves are up to 6 inches long, and divided into many oppositely arranged leaflets. Native to western North America.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
