Ground Plum


I have seen many Ground Plum wildflowers growing in Estes Park, I just never knew what they were called. But I thought this photograph captured the shape of the flower and the hairy leaflets pretty well.

Ground Plum is a perennial that grows to about 6″ tall. The white leguminous flowers grow in clusters of 6-8 flowers. The hairy leaves are pinnate which means the leaves grow opposite each other. Their fruit resembles a miniature plum, which is probably where it got its name.

Pretty plant, don’t you think?

    Yes, ethereal in nature. I wonder if the ‘hairs’ on the leaves are for capturing moisture. Thanks!
