Partridge Pea



Partridge Pea makes a great insect habitat for turkeys and other bug eaters as well as producing seeds for quail, dove, grouse and other wildlife. This widely planted annual reseeding legume produces a tremendous amount of seeds that last throughout the year. Seeds germinate over a long period of time to ensure the longevity of the stand. Stands of Partridge Pea produce protective cover against predators for birds, rabbits and small animals, as well as provide a winter food source for wildlife that has both quality and quantity. Seeds are fed upon primarily during the fall.     Not only is partridge pea great for upland bird habitats but also will attract deer and other small game animals such as rabbits that use the leaves of the plant as forage. It is a great addition to any wildlife food or cover plot.
