Silverleaf Psoralea: Blue Flowers on Silver Stalks

Tiny deep blue Silverleaf Psoralea flowers are among the most dramatic prairie wildflowers, especially when plants are massed together in a silver haze.

Beautifully, amazingly, the flowers really are blue. Well, with a purplish tinge, perhaps, but primarily a lovely deep, dark blue. Silverleaf Psoralea flowers are also less than one eighth of an inch long, so the silver leaves are the best guide to locating this native plant.
