Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is also commonly known as Lucerne,
Purple Medick and Trefoil.
Alfalfa is a cool season perennial flowering plant which grows to about
3 feet and has blue- violet flowers that bloom from July to September.
Alfalfa lives from five to twelve years, depending on variety and climate.
It resembles clover with clusters of small purple flowers. It also has a
deep root system sometimes stretching to 4.5 metres. This makes it very
resilient, especially to droughts.
