Nature Walk: Leadplant

By Taylor on July 27, 2015 in Blog


“Native prairies have a host of legumes mixed into their array of forbs and grasses. Leadplant (Amorpha canescens), pictured here, is unusual since it has woody stems and is shrub-like. It is long-lived and takes a number of years to develop to the flowering stage. Like other legumes, it produces nitrogen for use by other plants.” — Carl Kurtz
