a.k.a. Canada Tick Trefoil. This native legume has a deep taproot making it very drought tolerant.  It can reach 4 feet tall with pink to purple flowers.  After flowering, the seedpods are very sticky and cling to clothing and animals.  The plant does best in clay, well drained soils in full sun.  Blooms occur in mid to late summer.
