Bison-gourd was a flowering plant common on Pelleor's Prairie surrounding the Hill of Lost Souls.[1]


The oils harvested from this plant's seeds were hard to smell but could be used as a natural insect repellent. It should be noted that only normal-sized insects were repelled by the oil; larger insects or swarms were not affected in the least.[1]


Bison-gourd covered large areas of the prairie with runners that were usually dozens of feet long. This plant produced large yellow flowers that were shaped like trumpets. The flowers produced a fruit that could grow up to 5 inches (12.7 centimeters) long.[1]
