General Lespedeza Facts & Planting Info

Lespedeza seed produces a warm season legume that is native to South Asia, China and Korea. Here in the USA it is planted in wildlife food plots, livestock pastures, used in hay production and erosion control.

Areas of Adaptation For Lespedeza

Lespedeza has a wide range of adaptation in soil types of the Southeastern USA and Midwest. Prefers clay or loamy soil. Tolerates low fertility and acidic soils.

Uses For Lespedeza

Wildlife food plots for deer and upland game birds, hay production, livestock pasture, erosion control. Provides food and cover for deer, birds and other wildlife. When used for pasture and hay production lespedeza is generally planted with companion grasses.

Nutritional Value of Lespedeza & Grazing

Lespedeza has good nutritional value for grazing animals such as deer and cattle when the plant is young, but nutrition declines in mid to late summer as it matures due to the higher tannin levels present in plants. Although seeds are excellent fall and winter food for quail and turkey.
Grazing: Begin grazing or harvest when plants are 15 to 24 tall. Leave 4 stubble height. High tannin levels reduce consumption as a pasture. Tannin levels drop if harvested for hay. Improved varieties of Lespedeza such as the pasture cultivar Serala Sericea Lespedeza, A. U. grazer may perform better than common lespedeza in a pastures

Planting Lespedeza Seed

Lespedeza is considered to be an invasive species in some areas of the USA and is not legal for use in Kansas and Colorado. Please contact your Agricultural Extension Agent before planting this plant as it is considered to be an invasive species that must be managed properly.

The following planting information applies to all Lespedeza varieties except Bi-Color. Information on planting Bi-color Lespedeza.

Rate: 30 lb./acre or 1 lb./1000 sq. ft. broadcast
Dates: March - May; Un-hulled seed can be planted in autumn with germination occurring throughout the warmer months the following year.
Method: Seed in prepared seed bed 1/2 deep
Fertilization: Lespedeza is a legume and produces it's own nitrogen. It cannot withstand much fertilization and should not be planted with crops needing high N content. If necessary 200 lbs. of 10-10-10 fertilizer may be applied at plant establishment - no specific time requirement.
Inoculation: Though inoculation is less critical with lespedeza than it is with other legumes, the seed should be inoculated just before planting with fresh lespedeza inoculant.
