Hedysarum coronarium, commonly known as sulla clover, sulla, or French honeysuckle, is a perennial or biennial herbaceous plant that generally grows up to 3 feet tall is equal in width.
Hedysarum is a genus of plants that belong to the Fabaceae family. It includes around 100 herbaceous plants native to North Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America.
It has grayish-green compound leaves to medium green color, unpaired pinnate, each with 7 to 15 elliptical to round leaflets.
The bright red, extremely fragrant, pea-like flowers bloom from the end of spring to the beginning of summer in dense axillary clusters on upright flower stalks.
The flowers give way to non-delicate yellowish pods that turn brown with increasing maturity. This plant is often grown in parts of North Africa and Europe for hay and fodder.
