Identifying Crown-vetch

This is part of a series of videos providing key characteristics for the identification of invasive plants listed in Wisconsin’s invasive species administrative rule NR 40. A restricted species present in Wisconsin since the 1950s, crown-vetch (Securigera varia) was purposely planted for erosion control, but it’s rapidly invading the landscape. These videos are produced by Weed Specialist Mark Renz of the University of Wisconsin-Extension and the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
