Lotus corniculatus is a common flowering plant native to grassland temperate Eurasia and north Africa. The common name is bird's-foot trefoil (or similar, such as "birds foot trefoil"), though the common name is often also applied to other members of the genus. It is also known in cultivation in North America as bird foot is a perennial herbaceous plant, similar in appearance to some clovers. The flowers develop into small pea-like pods or legumes. The name 'bird's foot' refers to the appearance of the seed pods on their stalk. There are five leaflets, but with the central three held conspicuously above the others, hence the use of the name trefoil.
