Abstract

Bird's foot trefoil is a low growing, bushy legume which is gaining popularity as a forage plant. Its small sweet-pea-like blossoms are bright yellow, bearing a few thing scarlet lines along the standard (the topmost petal). The buds are scarlet-tipped, the scarlet disappearing as the flower matures. For this investigation, the flowers were picked when mature, or nearly so, then were air-dried at 20-30 degrees celsius. The petals were not separated from the calyx.
