What’s Up – Hairy VetchPosted: August 6, 2012
by Larry Halverson/Friends of Kootenay
Vicia villosa is known as the Hairy Vetch. If you look closely you’ll notice the fine white hairs that cover the stem and leaves, which give this plant its name. It is an exotic in that it is another European introduction that has become very common along roadsides and fields. It is currently making a colourful display at Olive Lake and along the Highway 93 through Sinclair & Kootenay valleys in Kootenay National Park.
Hairy Vetch climbs by means of tendrils on it’s leaves, often “scrambling” over other plants.
