A Desmodium from Gail in SC

Posted on |

Found this plant growing under a canopy of oak trees


Hi Gail,

all I can tell you for sure is that this is a Desmodium, but I am not sure of the species.   Clearer photos and fruits are needed for a specific identification.  They are called tick-trefoil or beggar lice, and it is a native plant.
