    Lotus Corniculatus

    Birds-foot Trefoil is a perennial herbaceous plant, similar in appearance to some clovers. The flowers are mostly visited by a wide range of pollinators, and develop into small pea-like pods or legumes. The name 'bird's foot' refers to the appearance of the seed pods on their stalk. There are five leaflets, but with the central three held conspicuously above the others, hence the use of the name trefoil. It is often used as forage and is widely used as food for livestock due to its non-bloating properties.
