Description

Bird’s-foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)

The name Bird’s-foot Trefoil comes from its seed heads which look like birds’ claws. It is also known as ‘Bacon & Eggs’ due to its egg-yolk yellow flowers which are often tipped with red. The flowers are attractive to bumblebees and butterflies and it is the food plant for the caterpillars of the lovely Common Blue butterfly. Birds-foot Trefoil is a low growing, perennial member of the pea family of sunny, well-drained sites. It flowers in June and July.

150-200 seeds per packet
