Bird's-foot Trefoil

Lotus corniculatus


It is a perennial herbaceous plant, similar in appearance to some clovers. The flowers 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.


Lotus corniculatus is a common flowering plant native to grassland temperate Eurasia and North Africa.
