Remarks:
Partridge pea is a warm season, native, reseeding annual legume. This 1-4 foot tall plant has types, but favors sandy to sandy loams. Rainfall of 19 inches or more improves growth. During the growing season from July to September, plants are covered with showy yellow pea type flowers. Seed pods are dark brown, flat, and pea shaped having 10 to 20 seeds per pod. Leaves are dark green. Partridge Pea is often used for area stabilization and reclamation. Game birds especially benefit from the food and cover provided. Although partridge pea foliage is nutritious, it can be poisonous and should be considered dangerous to cattle.
