Overview

Genus with around 183 species also called prairie clover or indigo bush. Almost half of this genus is found only in Mexico and some species from this genus have been proposed for use in habitat restoration of areas where domestic livestock or wild animals have been grazed. They produce showy flowerheads with small purple or yellow, sometimes blue or white flowers that tend to open from the base upwards.
