Narrow-Leaved Milk-Vetch


No ethnobotanical use of this plant is recorded. 


This plant has several stems that grow from one clump. The stems may be 30–40 cm long, but they are partly lodged, and reach upward about 15–20 cm. The cream-white flowers form clusters at the end of the stalks. The leaves of this milk-vetch are distinctive—they are numerous, narrow linear leaflets 2–6 cm long.

This is another of the milk-vetches that contains a toxic alkaloid, and accumulates selenium when it grows in alkali soil. It can be toxic to livestock that eat it.

This plant is not currently in the garden, but we hope it is coming soon.
