My husband used Crotalaria to induce
nitrogen to the soil for field crops with success. The blooms were so pretty I
began using the plants in the flower garden and am pleased with the effect.
The plant resembles snapdragons, has pea-like yellow blooms and is very easy to grow. Anyone wanting seeds just send SASE.
