OTHER: Goat's Rue is a prairie plant that is native to The US & Canada. They are found naturally in areas that are dry, sandy, & rocky, so can tolerate these conditions well. They are also able to grow in part sun. Goat’s Rue is a legume, so can help fix the nitrogen levels of the soil to improve its fertility.
The beautiful flowers of Goat’s Rue look similar to those of sweet peas. They bloom in clusters & are very showy with yellow upper petals & bright pink bottom petals. The leaves have a ferny feathery shape. The foliage is hairy, giving the plants a shimmery silvery appearance.
The flowers provide nectar & pollen bees & butterflies. Goat’s Rue is also a host plant for the Skipper Butterfly. The seeds & plants are poisonous to humans & livestock if they are eaten, so be sure to plant them somewhere they will not cause any harm. The 2" long seed pods develop by fall, & the seeds of the Goat’s Rue are eaten by game birds like turkey.
