Astragalus calycosus

A striking matted milkvech from the Great Basin and Desert Southwest, Astragalus calycosus grows at elevations of 3000'-8000' (915-2438m). There are three varieties listed for the species Astragalus calycosus var. calycosus, var. monophyllidius, and var. scaposus. Flowers colors range from white/cream, through pink and purple. The variety I am familiar with is Astragalus calycosus var. calycosus. I have not yet had the opportunity to grow this one but have hopes of finding seed one day.
