Bird's Foot Ttrefoil Lotus Corniculatus is native to Europe and Asia, but has become naturalized in much of the United States. The plant produces small, pea-like flowers. Flowers are bright yellow to deep orange and are sometimes tinged with red. It tolerates compacted, infertile, and poorly-drained soils. Birds-foot trefoil is also drought and salt tolerant.

Bird's Foot Ttrefoil Lotus Corniculatus is grown as a forage crop and also as a groundcover. Along the stem, the oval leaflets are in pairs, but all the shoots leading out from the main stem have three leaflets on the end - hence the name trefoil, meaning three leaves. Bird’s foot trefoil should be seeded with grasses for optimum forage production such as: timothy, smooth brome, orchard grass, tall fescue, and perennial ryegrass. The plant also attracts deer, turkey, and rabbit.
