Partridge Pea

Chamaecrista fasciculata


Partridge Pea is an annual species of legume native to most of the eastern United States. It has bright yellow flowers from early summer until first frost, with flowers through the entire flowering season if rainfall is sufficient. We just had a two day long soaking rain event.


Riparian hardwood forest.


It is considered an excellent choice for planting in disturbed areas, as it will quickly cover an area, preventing erosion, while still allowing other plants to become established. It is also grown as an ornamental or for honey production.
