Annual with erect stem is leafy and branching above. Leaflets occur in threes. Branched stems have palmately compound leaves and in racemes at ends of branches pink or reddish-purple flowers (sometimes white). Showy clusters of pink flowers continue to elongate during the season so that the slender seed capsules may be present even while the upper portion of the inflorescence in still flowering. Six conspicuous stamens protrude beyond the pink petals. Rocky Mountain beeplant may attain 4-5 ft.

Flowers produce copious nectar and attract bees hence the common name. Indians boiled the strong leaves for food and as a stomachache remedy. In times of drought early Spanish-Americans made tortillas from the barely palatable but nourishing seeds. 

Native Habitat: Prairies; open woods; wash areas; disturbed site.  Well-drained sandy soils.
Conditions Comments: Members of this genus have been cultivated as garden ornamentals. Rocky Mountain beeplant is recommended for short-term stabilization and beautification.  Bees are attracted to the pink flowers and seeds are important food for doves and other small birds
