Item details

Lotus corniculatus L., birdsfoot trefoil is a short-lived, non-bloating perennial legume which has the ability to reseed itself under proper management. Stems are smaller in diameter and less rigid than alfalfa stems and can grow to a height of 12 to 30 inches depending on whether it is a prostrate or erect variety.

• Birdsfoot Trefoil is used as a high quality, non-bloating legume for pastures, hay and stock-piling.

• Flowers are bright yellow (4 to 8 perstem) with each flower producing one seed pod. Seed pods radiate from the flower stalk, resembling a birds foot. Leaves are compound with five oval leaflets.

• Birdsfoot trefoil has a well developed tap root with numerous lateral branches in the upper 15 inches of soil. There are approximately 370,000 seeds per pound.

• Erosion control: Birdsfoot trefoil is often used for mine reclamation and other sites with marginal soils.

• Wildlife: Birdsfoot trefoil is used in wildlife mixes and is an excellent food source for deer.
