Lespedeza capitata (Round-Headed Bush Clover) [25 Seeds]


Germination Information: I recommend these seeds only for gardeners who have experience with seeds that benefit from or require a chilling period. The easiest approach is to sow the seeds (1/4″ deep) in a pot in fall to late winter, setting them outdoors in a spot protected from mice so they can get a natural chilling period and then germinate when conditions are right in spring.

If you sow after February, give the pot an artificial chilling period of about 2 months.

It is possible that these seeds could germinate (though at a less-than-optimal percentage) if you sow them in warm, moist, bright conditions. But if you try that and no seedlings appear within 3 weeks or so, then try the artificial chilling period mentioned above.

Note that this information will not appear on the seed packet you receive.

Round-headed bush clover (Lespedeza capitata) is a US native that looks right at home in a meadow garden or naturalistic border. The 3- to 4-foot-tall stems carry rounded clusters of small, creamy white flowers in mid- to late summer. The equally interesting seedheads mature to a rich brown and last through winter, supplying food for birds and cut material for holiday decorating. Full sun. Perennial; Zones 4 to 8.

Harvested in late September 2022. At least 25 seeds. Unknown ecotype. Shipping to US addresses only.
