Birdsfoot Trefoil

Eggs and Bacon’ Lovely clusters of yellow/orange pea-like flowers. The name ‘bird’s foot’ refers to the appearance of the seed pods on their stalk. The flowers are used mainly as a sedative and for other aspects of the nervous and cardiac systems. They have an antispasmodic effect on the digestive tract.
