Alfalfa is a flowering perennial in the legume family with a long history as a drought-resistant forage and pasturage crop due to having an expansive root system that can extend more than 40 feet into the ground.

It has escaped into rural and urban areas, however, where it thrives along roadsides, in vacant lots and other isolated but disturbed places. It is sometimes mistaken for clover because the flowers are similar in appearance, although alfalfa can reach a height of three feet.

The young leaves are eaten as salad greens or dried and powdered for use as a dietary supplement.

Alfalfa was first cultivated in ancient Persia. After the Persian invasion of ancient Greece, cultivation of the herb as animal fodder spread throughout the Mediterranean region.

Although alfalfa is widely distributed in the western world today, it wasn’t until the 1500s that the Spanish introduced the plant to North America. The early 18th American colonists struggled for years before successfully growing the plant, which they called lucerne.

This alternate name is an adaption of luzerno, a 16th century French word that translates to “glow worm” and is a reference to the plant’s glossy seeds. Alfalfa is still called lucerne in France and in other parts of Europe today.
