Anthyllis vulneraria reaches 5–40 centimetres (2.0–16 in) of height. The stem is simple or more often branched. The leaves are imparipinnate, glabrous or with scattered hairs on the upper face and silky hairs on the underside.
The flower heads are spherical in shape and 10–20 millimetres (0.39–0.79 in) long. The flower are yellow in almost all sub-species, with the typical irregular shape of the flowers of legumes. Flowering takes place between June and September. The fruit is a legume. The fruits ripening takes place from July to October.
Medicinal uses
Anthyllis is little known today but was traditionally used to relieve spasms, detoxify, reduce swelling, and promote wound healing.
Elisabeth Sigmund rediscovered anthyllis, finding it normalized both oily and dry conditions as well as severely irritated skin. Anthyllis has a generally stimulating and normalizing effect on the skin.
This plant is spontaneous in the entire Europe, from Iceland to the Mediterranean, in Asia Minor up to Iran, in North Africa and in Ethiopia. It is naturalized in North America. It prefers the dry grasslands and rocky environments with calcareous soil, up to 3000 m of altitude.

Ciao Fabrizio,
un'altra splendida immagine di fiori montani, come sempre ottima scelta nella prospettiva grandangolare, bellissimi colori in primo piano pervasi di luce, che poi lentamente si spengono per l'ombra accompagnandosi alla progressiva sfocatura.
Grazie e complimenti

Bonsoir Fabrizio,
Une image très attractive de cette merveilleuse plante qu'est A. vulneraria, une fleur que je connais bien et que je trouve très plaisante. Une image typique de ta part, j'aime beaucoup l'angle de vue choisi. Très belles couleurs, j'aime beaucoup la palette de couleurs (jaune, vert, gris)
Bonne soirée
