Partridge Pea is a small, easy-to-identify plant, usually less than 24 inches tall, often just a foot or less. Partridge Pea has distinctive sensitive plant-like leaves, with small but prominent yellow flowers.

Partridge Pea is one of the very few annual plants found on tallgrass prairies in Ohio. It grows and re-seeds well, particularly on looser soils and where big bluestem or other tall, dense vegetation has not taken over a site.

One of the best pollinator plants, it's great for honey bees. Partridge Pea is a great way to introduce kids to native wildflowers. Its larger seed makes it easy to hold and it typically germinates and flowers in the same growing season when planted in early spring.
