insects love it

Great as a cover crop and the insects love it! I think it looks nice as well, epically in large swathes.

Thanks for the ID.

Thanks for the ID.
Didn't know where to start with this, as I'd never seen anything similar. I will look for it again on my holiday next month.

not native

It’s not native to the UK (its from North America) but used as stated above as cover crop and great for insects especially bees so used in pollen and nectar rich margins on farms sometimes.
