Bundleflower, Illinois (Desmanthus illinoensis)

11.95

This Illinois prairie perennial adds texture to your garden with its mimosa-like leaf texture. It produces white-yellow poms in June that turn to dark brown seed pods in late summer to fall. Bees enjoy visiting the flowers, while birds enjoy the seeds and mammals benefit from the high protein content of the leaves. It prefers full sun and dry to medium soil moisture. It can grow 2-3ft tall with similar spread. It is drought, dry soil, and shallow-rocky soil tolerant, making this a good addition for a prairie or cedar barren. Zones 5-8.
