Roundhead lespedeza is a native, warm-season perennial legume adapted to all but northern tier states of the tall prairie region of the central and eastern United States. Roundhead lespedeza is a very desirable component of warm-season grass plantings. It is readily grazed by all classes of livestock and is an important food source for upland game birds. Although found in lowland prairie sites, it tends to be more common in upland sites. The attractive silvery-sheen green foliage makes it an attractive plant for the garden. Roundhead lespedeza does not spread aggressively by rhizomes and is not a prolific seed producer.
