Dalea is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. Members of the genus are commonly known as prairie clover[3] or indigo bush.[4] Its name honors English apothecary Samuel Dale (1659–1739).[5] They are native to the New World, where they are distributed from Canada to Argentina.[6] Nearly half of the known species are endemic to Mexico.[7] Two species of Dalea (Dalea ornata and Dalea searlsiae) have been considered for rangeland restoration.[8]
