 It's Wildflower Wednesday here on the Blog!    Today's flower is one I usually see mostly in the spring and early summer but I saw some this year in October!  This is Wild Alfalfa and it's normal bloom time is May through July.  It is another drought resistant plant and it's roots can go down as much as 10 feet to find moisture.  The height of the plant can be from 1 to 4 feet.  The roots have been used in early days to make a tea to treat head aches.

    1. It is. I was quite surprised about the root depth but it seems there are several prairie plants that do that
