Golden dalea is a warm season perennial legume found in the sandy prairies of South Texas. It is rated as a fair-to-good forage for wildlife (white-tailed deer) and fair forage for cattle. Golden dalea is usually found as single plants scattered within a landscape. It produces abundant seed in mid-summer. Germination can be improved by scarification after removal from the pod. Some daleas can be grown from cuttings. Cuttings should be made from old-growth near the base of the plant.
