I think this seed came in a bag of deer resistant wildflowers – bloomed first in 2020 – this one is from saved seed – as you can see, the “blooms” look like tiny birds – their tummies become the bright green seed pod and there are probably 50 seeds in each pod – this plant is over 6′ tall. The birds are about an inch long.

    Oops sorry, that link below didn’t work too well, it is missing the information. Hope this second one is a better link.

    The direct sunlight on the plant is making it difficult to see details of flowers, leaves & fruits. I’m guessing maybe a species of rattlepod (Crotalaria)? If this is of the genus, I’m not certain of the species. According to sources, the narrow-leaf rattlepod (C. lanceolata) fruit can have 20-50 seeds. Copy and paste the included link for information, click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
