Record #:
Carolina birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus unifoliolatus var. helleri) is an annual plant species of Federal Concern and is significantly rare in North Carolina. Trefoil occurs on mowed roadsides in the North Carolina Piedmont. The phenology and simulated mowing study suggested that mowing during growing seasons could threaten trefoil populations.
