Lespedeza capitata, also known as Dusty Clover, Rabbitfoot, and Roundhead Lespedeza, is a deep rooted legume found in prairies and open woods. This plant has a round shape flower head that is attached to stems near the ends. It is readily eaten by grazing animals and its seeds are consumed by many birds. It is also used as a reclamation species on very poor soils. The leaves and stems are covered with silver hair, giving it a unique appearance. Lespedeza capitata has several biologically active compounds that are used in pharmaceutical preparations. It has demonstrated antitumor activity against Walker-256 carcinosarcoma and is reportedly effective in lowering blood cholesterol levels. It has also been used as an antidote to poisoning and has been used in moxibustion in the treatment of neuralgia and rheumatism. This plant is a good addition to livestock forage as it is palatable and nutritious. Visit our website to learn more about this fascinating plant.
