Bicolor Lespedeza Bi-color lespedeza is a perennial shrub that is planted using transplants in December through March, or using seeds in early spring. The Bi-color lespedeza plant is an excellent game bird cover and is also a heavy seed producer.

These shrub type lespedezas should be planted in rows along wood areas, break lines, fields, or anywhere they can be incorporated into the wildlife scene for food and cover and utilized by many species of animals. The shrubs can be planted into natural hedgerows and will provide quality erosion control and will often grow up to eight feet tall. Bicolor is probably the best known lespedeza and is often grown specifically for quail.

On obtaining full growth lespedeza will create beautiful large hedges which wildlife use as cover. It will tend to be especially beneficial to wildlife at road or trail crossings.

BiColor Lespedeza - Plants VS Seeds

BiColor Lespedeza is available from Seedland in either bare root plants or seed. Please note that there is limited availability for bare rooted BiColor Lespedeza every year so order early!

Bare rooted BiColor Lespedeza plants will be 12-15 inches in height and are dormant when shipped. These bare rooted dormant plants should be planted ASAP when received and will proceed to establish and bud out as the weather warms (spring). Plants mature to 5-8 feet in 2-3 years (maturity may vary due to your environmental conditions) View info on Bicolor Lespedeza plants at Seedland.com.

When growing BiColor Lespedeza from seed, plants takes up to 3 years to reach 12-16 inches and 4 years to reach maturity (5 - 8 feet). Plant seeds at least 3 seed to a hill about 3 feet apart on all sides. Sandy soil is best but they will grow in other types of soils, it just takes longer.

BiColor Lespedeza Quick Facts

Type: BiColor Lespedeza is a warm season perennial shrub that can grow as high as eight feet.

Uses: Bicolor lespedeza is a legume, so it supplies its own nitrogen. The abundant seed produced is attractive to quail and other game birds and can remain in the soil for long periods without rotting because of its hard seed coat. The shrub makes an excellent food and cover for birds. Many landowners use it for a border or in hedge rows for funneling animals through corridors or creating dense screens so motorists cannot see into fields from the road.

Best Food Plot For: Deer, Turkey, Dove, Pheasant, Rabbit, and Quail
