Lespedeza bicolor, also known as Bicolor Lespedeza, Bush Clover, Shrub Lespedeza, and Shrubby Bushclover, is a beautiful and versatile plant that is native to Asia and widely grown as an ornamental plant. This erect shrub can grow up to 9 ft in height and width, and it tolerates arid soils well, making it a great choice for windbreaks, sand stabilization, and soil conservation. Lespedeza bicolor is quite variable in appearance and has been bred into a number of cultivars. This plant produces pink and purple pealike flowers and flat legume pods. While it is a beautiful addition to any garden, it also has been introduced as an invasive species in some areas, such as the southeastern United States, where it can interfere with native plant growth and negatively impact schedules of controlled burns of fire-adapted habitats.
