Kidney vetch


The alpine wound clover is a striking representative of the legume family. The inflorescence consists of many individual flowers with white-haired, inflated calyxes that resemble a wound dressing. In fact, in folk medicine, the plant is also used to treat wounds, as it is rich in tannins. The alpine wound clover is also useful for the animal world. For example, the caterpillar of the dwarf blue feeds exclusively on wound clover.
