BIRDSFOOT TREFOIL FLOWERS

 

On the ground by the parking lot of Bridgewater State University  near the Science building, these yellow flowers, Lotus Corniculatus or simply, Birdsfoot Trefoil,  abound.  Bees, tiny butterflies, and other insects were busy drinking from these flowers nectar.  These plants are perrenials, accordingly, in northern areas like MA, I suppose, they also go dormant during winter.

 

Apart from providing food for animals in the wild, Bird’s-Foot Trefoil, are used as ground cover and animal feed. On the other hand, they can also be invasive and harmful to other plants.
