General:
Annual to 50cms. Bright yellow hooded, almost pea-like flowers on flower stems, May to June.

Benefits:
A root hemi-parasite on grasses, noted for its ability to diminish grass and so open up a meadow for other wild flowers to flourish. Generally a good moth food plant, it is the larval food plant of the Grass rivulet (Perizoma albulata).

Habitat:

Sowing guidelines:
Sow up to Christmas direct. It must get into firm contact with and into the soil. Once established allow it to self seed every year for continuous benefit.
The seed doesn’t keep well so we won’t have any back in stock until after harvest 2020 in July/August, giving you time to order and prepare the ground.
