This drought-tolerant, hardy perennial requires no supplemental water after it is established. It is in the peanut family, thus it makes its own nitrogen. This eliminates the need of nitrogen fertilizers. It will go dormant in all areas in cold winters but will come back in early spring and does not require replanting once established.
