Lespedeza thunbergii
Bush Clover

Bush Clover, a semi-woody large perennial that has rosey-pink (rarely white) flowers in late Summer and early Autumn, is a good companion plant for blue and purple flowering perennials of the same season, such as Purple Dome Aster and Ironweed, or for the larger ornamental grasses. It is extremely tolerant of drought, dies back to its crowns every Winter, and emerges relatively late in Spring.
