Medicago lupulina

Medicago lupulina
Common name black medic
Family fabaceae
Life cycle annual/perennial
Flowers yellow (late spring-summer)
Size groundhugger
Light sun-part shade

Common weed in our garden, likes to nestle itself into cracks between our pathstones, or near the front of borders. It often goes unnoticed for quite a while, and can extend itself for quite a distance in the meantime. It grows from a single central stem, though, and it's pretty easy to pull up - a trowel helps, to get it by the roots.
