Hairy Vetch

Hairy Vetch is a quick growing legume used as a green manure crop. The 4’-5’ sprawling plants are covered with attractive bluish-purple flowers. It is treated as an annual although some plants may winter over, and it may also self seed. It will fix more nitrogen if inoculated with a broad bean/fava inoculant.
