Showiest of the Tick Trefoils, Desmodium canadense is covered with bright purple pea-like flowers in the heat of mid-summer. A deep taproot makes this plant incredibly drought resistant. A member of the Legume Family, it improves the soil by adding nitrogen, and the seeds are used by a variety of birds and other wildlife. Loves clay and will grow on any moderately rich well-drained or slightly damp soil. Spreads by means of "stick-tight" seeds. The nectar, pollen, seeds and foliage of this species appeal to a number of insects, birds and mammals.
