Texas bush-clover

Our little Texas bush-clover (Lespedeza texana) is coming right along. I just love this native species that I transplanted from our adjoining neighbor's yard (with her permission, of course) in October 2014. Now it can grow freely without being mowed. Its tiny purple flowers resemble delicate orchids. This year, I harvested some seeds. Each pod contains one tiny black seed, which looks like a pea (see photo below).
