This is a genus of low legumes with good-sized heads of flowers, rather like a high-quality clover. It is most usually encountered as Anthyllis vulneraria, the kidney vetch, a widespread species in Europe, including Britain.
Anthyllis vulneraria is the kidney vetch, commonly found in stony (usually limestone) places in Britain and throughout Europe.The plant is low, but its lax flower stems spread perhaps 30 cm all round, giving a splash of yellow.
