Astragalus utahensis

Common name Utah milkvetch
Family fabaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-7)
Flowers pink (spring)
Size to 6"
Light sun
Cultural notes drought-tolerant

Hairy gray-green divided leaves with pink pea-flowers. I've tried many astragalus species, and none survive a season for me – will this be the one that does?

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
