Hi,

Trying to identify this summer plant with small yellow flowers, tiny oblong leaves, and what appears to be an upright "furry" catkin-like stalk in the center. I apologize for a not so good photo. This is in northern NJ.

Thanks for any ideas.

I agree I agree; common name Yellow Sweet Clover. The honeybees love this plant.

There is a possibility that the plant may be Melilotus indicus as it is similar to M. officinalis and both plants occur in your area.
