Kidney vetch, as the name suggests, heals the landscape from its wounds, like when an avalanche devastates the landscape, when humans dig craters in Mother Earth and permanently unsightly fractures are caused. Like the other types of clover (and peas), it lives in symbiosis with bacteria that bind nitrogen in its root nodules.

The plant is one of the herbal herbs, which means it protects against bad influences caused by evil thoughts and witchcraft.

With its bright yellow flowers, individual flowers can be used in salads and soups.
