  • I'm a native to the US, but not to NY.  

    I'm a legume.


    I'm drought tolerant and easily grow in dry soil.


    I have showy flowers that are shaped like the flowers on a mimosa tree. I'm sometimes called prairie mimosa. 


    My seed heads are twisted into a fist looking shape. 


    My nutritious seeds attract birds


    Deer and rabbit find my foliage irresistible.
