Sainfoin is a deep rooted perennial legume that grows 8 - 36 inches tall with a showy cluster of pink or white flowers. Sainfoin is a non-bloating perennial legume that is highly nutritious, and very palatable for grazing animals. Sainfoin is an excellent deer attractant and bees readily take nectar from the pink flowers and sainfoin nectar makes excellent honey. Sainfoin is similar to alfalfa, but is taller, non-bloating, shorter lived, will bloom one to two weeks earlier and does not have a lot of regrowth after cutting. Sainfoin is resistant to the alfalfa weevil and is resistant to the root rot phase.
