Upland or Wetland?

VA-70 Lespedeza
Wildlife usage:Excellent quail food and cover. Only shrub lespedeza well-adapted to Virginia.
Planting time:January-April
Planting rate/acre:3' between seedlings; 5' between rows
Soils, adaptations, and fertility:Does well in wet to dry sites. Does not sustain as much deer browse damage as most shrubs.
Additional Comments:An excellent field border shrub row is a mixed planting of Indigobush, Silky Dogwood, and VA-70 Lespedeza. Add others as possible, especially the Viburnums.
