Illinois bundleflower (Desmanthus illinoiensis) is a native prairie legume that produces relatively large harvests of protein-rich seed (Kulakow, 1999).
One especially promising native legume is Illinois bundleflower (Desmanthus illinoensis), a shrub-like perennial.

Perhaps because our plots attracted larger granivores than expected (e.g., blackbirds and doves) or because large seeds are more easily encountered than small ones (e.g., Getty and Pulliam 1993), avian granivores also depressed large-seeded bundleflower (Desmanthus illinoensis; seed 5.32 rag) and purple coneflower (Echinacea purpurea; seed 4.05 mg), with the latter impact at high seeding densities.
In less than two decades of selections and crosses, Land Institute researchers have achieved yields of Illinois bundleflower and wild senna comparable to wheat yields in the region.
