The white blooms on this go in all directions. I like the way it looks. The blooms are white. I'm not sure what it is. I don't think I've noticed before now.

It's a great bee plant, too. Late last spring I was concerned with the seeming absence of bees here at our place, so I took a walk to see what was up. The state park next door had/has lots of this growing there, and that's where I found the bees. Smiling

This plant reminds me of that grass called Blonde Ambition from a distance. It's really nice.

Melilotus is a naturalized non-native from Europe and Asia. All over the midwest USA it's considered an invasive weed, and can overrun our native prairies.
