Astragalus purshii (woolly-pod milkvetch)
A small but entrancing milkvetch
This small perennial is found in well drained soils, often in the rockiest lithosols but also in finer soils. It’s a prostrate plant with purplish to very pale lavender flowers that morph into very fuzzy seed pods covered in white hairs, looking like a small rabbitfoot. Photo by Heidi Newsome
NOTE: will be dormant and pot may look empty, but the roots have been checked and look healthy.
