Korean lespedeza is an annual, warm season legume. It is commonly grown in food plot mixtures for game birds such as turkey and quail. It can also be used as a quick erosion control, cover, or nurse crop. Korean lespedeza tolerates multiple soil textures and fertility levels. It can occasionally re-seed itself but will need mechanical re-seeding over time to maintain adequate stands. Grower’s Note: These seeds are not pre-inoculated. Korean Lespedeza is part of the legume family and may require inoculant treatment for best results. Plants in the legume family benefit tremendously from adding rhizobacteria or “inoculant” to the seed. The bacteria added to the seed forms a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship with the legume plant roots. The bacteria help capture nitrogen from the air and makes it available to the plant roots which improves overall plant growth. Unless Lespedeza has been grown in the field within the last three years, it is best to inoculate seed right before planting. We offer a full selection of inoculants based on species. Please follow the instructions that come with the inoculant for best results.
