Leadplant is a tallgrass prairie wildflower that blooms in late spring or summer. The plant grows up to three feet tall and sports spikes of purple flowers. Early settlers used parts of leadplant in herbal remedies. Also known as Prairie Shoestring after the appearance of the long, stringy roots.


The real problem is the conflict between the economic laws that have reduced the planet and society to a supermarket where everything is for sale and the ecological laws that maintain the planet's ecological functions and social laws that distribute nature's goods and services equitably.
