Using ecology to restore land and water
White prairie clover is a dainty prairie perennial with fine textured foliage and cylindrical flower heads packed with small white flowers. It is similar to purple prairie clover (Dalea purpurea), but less common. It is a legume and can fix nitrogen from the air into the soil. The plant is slow to develop and not aggressive. Bees and beetles visit the flowers for pollen and nectar. White prairie clover thrives in well drained, sandy or rock soils and is drought tolerant.
