Bird's Foot Trefoil Seeds - Lotus corniculatus

Bird's Foot Trefoil - or Birds Foot Trefoil - is an extremely resilient perennial wildflower that is a staple of most wildflower meadows. Attractive for sure, but hardly glamorous, this lovely flower is typically valued more as a reliable member of the chorus, than as a star performer. Its most laudable value lies in its ability to provide consistent color at an affordable price.

Could be considered invasive in areas of the USA. Check with your local agricultural office.
