Dalea greggii

 
Dalea greggii

Common name trailing indigo bush, Gregg's prairie clover
Family fabaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers purple (spring)
Size 9-12"
Cultural notes very well-drained soil; drought-tolerant

Mounding evergreen plant from western Texas, showing off a profusion of purple flowers starting in spring. Because the finely compound silvery-green foliage can spread to several times as wide as it is high, it is often used as a groundcover, especially in sloping areas. Benefits from shearing early in the year, before new growth starts.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: left fence border
