Description from Prairie Moon Nursery:  Goat’s Rue is an eye-catching plant of dry upland, often sandy or acidic prairies and gravel deposits near several of the major US rivers. The late-spring to early-summer blooms are like no other prairie plant; the dense clusters of flowers are at the top of the stems with a pale yellow upper petal and two smaller fuschia lower petals.

This legume’s seeds form among attractive feather-like, greenish-gray leaves in late summer. Distinctive hairy, flat 2″-long pods cover the plant, making identification easy. Choose a dry, moderately sunny spot wisely because, once established, Goat’s Rue does not divide and does not like to be moved. This perennial has a deep taproot that eventually branches into fibrous roots.
