Crown Vetch (Securigera varia)

Crown vetch is a herbaceous, perennial legume introduced from the Mediterranean region. Crown vetch has a multi-branched root system and spreads by strong fleshy rhizomes making it useful with soil stabilization. Flowers are pinkish-white to deep pink in long-stalked clusters. Seed pods are segmented, pointed, borne in crown-like clusters. It is not a true vetch and does not have tendrils for climbing. It normally grows to a height of 1½ to 2 feet.
