Noticed this plant in the Botanical Gardens yesterday - it was alive with bees!
It was in the 'trials' area but had no label on it.

It's very............

It's very attractive to bees and can be used as a green manure. It's a real all rounder, but as an annual, it must be sown from seed each year.
