100 Illinois Tick Trefoil flower Seeds
This nitrogen-fixing native legume is a crucial food source for wild birds such as northern bobwhites, ruffed grouse, and wild turkeys. It also acts as a larval host for numerous butterflies including eastern tailed blue and silver spotted skipper. This plant's genus name Desmodium means "long chain," a reference to the unique segmented seed pods of this plant. The common names "Beggar's Lice" and "Stick Tights" are derived from the tendency of the seed pods to stick to everything they touch.
Before planting, pour 180 degrees F water over the seeds and soak them overnight to soften the seed coat and speed germination. After the last frost of spring, direct sow 1/4" deep and keep the soil consistently moist until germination, which should occur within 10-15 days. To start the seed indoors, sow them in a flat 4-6 weeks before the last frost of spring; keep the soil lightly moist and at a temperature of 70 degrees F until germination. Thin or transplant seedlings.
