Yellow Trefoil is growing well in rocky soil and drought


I would love to find some seeds for this plant but the only place online I found them was in the UK. These little clover like plants have established themselves in my rocky barren soil where the topsoil was scraped off to build the house. They grow low to the ground and are covered with small yellow flowers.

With some research I discovered they are considered invasive weeds. I should be so lucky. The picture above shows an upright plant, but they usually creep along the ground, making a nice ground cover and all the while fixing nitrogen in the soil. Yellow trefoil is native to Europe but has spread to North America and is often mixed with red clover seed. It may have come in the package of wildflowers I bought and scattered last fall. At any rate, I am very glad to see it and hope I can find a outlet that sells the seeds. If anyone knows of such, please let me know.
