Desmanthus illinoensis (Illinois Bundle Flower) is bushy and smooth, growing up to 4' tall. Flowering June through August, the round clusters appear fuzzy due to long stamens projecting from each flower. The small numerous paired leaflets are delicate in appearance and resemble those of a fern.

This is a legume species (member of the pea family).  Most legumes harbor beneficial bacteria called rhizobia on their roots.  Prairie Moon provides genus-specific strains of this bacterium called inoculum for legume seed free of charge with the purchase of legume seed.  To properly inoculate your legume seed prior to planting, follow germination code I below.
