Birds-foot Trefoil is a native Irish wildflower perennial that grows throughout Ireland in pastures, hedgerows, roadside verges, riverbanks and coastal areas.
Birds-foot Trefoil grows to 35cm high and flowers from June to September producing bright yellow blooms that are often patterned with streaks of red. The yellow flowers are an important source of nectar for many species of insect, including Bees and Butterflies. It is also an important food source for caterpillars of the Common Blue, Green Hair streak and Painted Lady Butterfly species.
Birds-foot Trefoil is a very important food source and habitat for Ireland's butterfly species which is why it has been selected for our Throw and Grow Native Irish Seed Bombs.
