Chamaecrista fasciculata - Partridge Pea

Great Pollinator Plant!

A small, easy-to-identify plant, usually less than 24 inches tall, often just a foot or less. Partridge Pea has distinctive sensitive plant-like leaves, with small but prominent yellow flowers.

Partridge Pea is one of the very few annual plants found on tallgrass prairies in Ohio. It grows and re-seeds well, particularly on looser soils and where big bluestem or other tall, dense vegetation has not taken over a site.

One of the best pollinator plants, it's great for honey bees.
