Great Soil Improver
Reviewed By: Ken Asmus (Lawton, MI)
I have used crown vetch many times.Yes its rhizome nature is aggressive but the benefits are many. It fixes nitrogen. Other trees and shrubs growing with it increase in growth rate. It can tolerate pollution and drought. Overtime it improves the soil making it easier for other plants to get established with it. It is not native but it is a fantastic work horse of a plant and is currently holding up millons of tons of topsoil along many of our nations highways.

Think before you plant
Reviewed By: D. Pease (Fond du Lac, WI)
This is not so much a review as a warning. Crownvetch will surely live up to its hype - it's been widely used to stop erosion along our highways. But it is an invasive exotic plant, and it's taking over! Please consider using something native to your part of the country, there are plenty of choices out there.
