A plant of many names: Latin -  Pediomelum tenuiflorum, Psoralea tenuiflora, Psoralidium tenuiflorum; and common - Slender Scurfy Pea, Slimflower Scurfpea, Scurfy Pea, and Wild Alfalfa, this palmately-leaved legume is said to repel mosquitos when burned. Scurfy Pea is considered a plant of special value to native bees by the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.

This is a legume species (member of the pea family).  Most legumes harbor beneficial bacteria called rhizobia on their roots.  Prairie Moon provides genus-specific strains of this bacterium called inoculum for legume seed free of charge with the purchase of legume seed.  To properly inoculate your legume seed prior to planting, follow germination code I below.

Dormant bare root plants ship each year during optimal transplanting season: Fall (October) or Spring (April/May).
