Description - 20-40 yellow pea-flowers with slightly inflated calyxes are gathered in a roundish flower-head. Leaflets are also downy, and pinnately arranged in a loose rosette.Subsp. corbieri is also present, but has no red on the calyx and patent hairs on the stem.
Habitat - In thin, poor soil in cracks in the rocks on the cliffs, often exposed to sea spray.
Comments - Rather rare, found only between Petit Bot and Icart, with one record in Town, presumably in a seed mix.
