Purple Crown Vetch

Securigera varia

Description:

Representative of Fabaceae family, the Crown vetch is a vine, some 60 to 70 cm tall. It has a long and composite leaves. A plant produces a number of blossoms, clusters of small light pink flowers, typical for Fabaceae family.

Habitat:

This Fabaceae member is a common one in our region, and I observed it in a wide variety of habitats, from mountain grasslands to lower-altitude meadows. Here, observed growing on edges of deciduous, predominantly oak, (Bagasse forest) forest on France-Switzerland border, in a valley of lake Geneva, just in between Jura and Alps mountains ranges.
