Lead Plant (Amorpha canescens) seeds. 鉛色紫穗槐的種子.

Very hardy, drought tolerant shrub.  Easy to grow and propagate. Best growing in full sun location.  Silvery foliage covered with very fine, short hair.  Purple/blue small flowers from late spring to mid summer.  Flowers attract bees and butterflies.    USDA Zones:2-9. Mature size:2′-3′(H) X 1.5′-2′(W).  Propagate by seeds or cuttings.  Plant has very deep roots so it doesn’t transplant well.  Medicinal.

“Medicinal Use: The Omaha Indians powdered the dried leaves and blew them into cuts and open wounds. The astringent property of the leaves encouraged scab formation. The Potawatomi Indians made a leaf tea to kill pinworms, various intestinal worms, and the liquid tea was used to cure eczema."–quote from http://wildones.org/download/people/stiefel/stiefel2.html

豆科紫穗槐屬的灌木.  非常強健易於栽種與繁殖的小型灌木.  最好栽種在全日照處.  鉛色綠的葉片被有銀白細毛. 春末到仲夏開著藍紫色小花. 花頗吸引蜂蝶.  極為耐寒也耐熱.  成熟植株高約2-3英尺,寬幅1.5-2英尺. 繁殖方式以種子為主,也可以扦插方式來進行. 植株根系深,移植不易.  藥用.

“藥用: 奧瑪哈的原住民以其乾燥的葉碾成細末後覆蓋於開放傷口能使傷口快速復原結痂. 波塔瓦托米的原住民以其葉片煮成藥湯後飲用來打蟯蟲等寄生蟲. 葉片煮後的湯水也可作為用於治療皮膚炎的洗劑." –摘錄自網站 Wild Ones. http://wildones.org/download/people/stiefel/stiefel2.html
