Illinois Bundleflower, Desmanthus illinoensis
bundleflower is considered one of the most important native prairie legumes.
Its uses range from nutritious food for livestock to food and cover for
wildlife, such as deer and antelope, birds and rodents. The plant can range
from 24” to 5 feet in height, and can become a full bush. Tiny white flowers
turn to glossy brown pods in late fall and winter, making it a handsome plant
year-round. Greenery dies back leaving dark brown branches, only to spring from
the ground into a bush again into the spring. 50 seeds/2.00, 1/2 oz./5.00.
