Here is your plant of the week! Silky Prairieclover. A super-soft forb with fur covered leaves and flowers the color of pale lilacs. This plant just headed out and only had a few flowers blooming.
I love how soft the leaves and flowers are this time of year. I know, I know. I am a “range nerd”. Part of the reason I love living in the Sandhills- the diversity of the wild grasses and flowers.
And those darn cactus that stick to your flip-flops and exposed toes! Hmmm… maybe that is why I like the silky prairieclover. No pokies!
