Musta-apila / Large Brown Clover

Trifolium spadiceum

Moni ei ole varmaan kuullutkaan musta-apilasta?
Musta-apila on levinnyt aikoinaan Suomeen idästä ihmisen ja karjanhoidon mukana. Mutta nykyisin se on harvinaistunut ja on alueellisesti jopa uhanalainen.

The large brown clover spread to Finland with cattle husbandry from the east. It is a declining species and today it is regionally endangered.
It grows in damp meadows, but it has never been important as a fodder plant.
