Further information

International importance as a Crop Wild Relative. Irish plants may contain unique genetic characteristics that could aid species recovery and conservation programs in the future. This species may be a recent introduction as most of the records are post 1990. It is suspected that earlier records probably refer to Vicia sativa subsp. Sativa.
