43. Tufted Vetch
(Vicia cracca L.)

43. Tufted Vetch

From June to August the long bright flower sprays of the Tufted Vetch create gay spots of colour on many a bank and in thickets. It is a rambling, scrambling Vetch, with stems often four feet long, and with tendrils at the ends of the leaves which enable it to cling to branches and twigs for support. It is a native, and common throughout the British Isles.
