Leadplant has been valued by many Native American tribes for its diverse uses. Traditionally, a tea made from the leaves was consumed, sometimes as part of wellness practices for general health support. The plant also played a role in various cultural practices, including being used in mixtures for smoking and believed by some to attract buffalo when applied to clothing. Known as 'buffalo bellows,' the timing of its flowering coincided with the buffalo rut season. Beyond its cultural significance, leadplant is an ideal ornamental species due to its showy flowers, drought and shade tolerance, and its ability to fix nitrogen, making it suitable for prairie restoration projects. It serves as a floral food resource for pollinating insects such as solitary bees and is highly palatable to various types of livestock and wildlife, including cattle, sheep, horses, elk, and deer.
