Coronilla

 

a genus of annual and perennial grasses and small shrubs of the family Leguminosae. The leaves are odd-pinnate, and the flowers are in umbellate inflorescences. There are approximately 25 species in Europe (mainly in the Mediterranean region), the Caucasus, Turkmenia, and the Canary Islands. In the USSR there are ten species, mostly growing in meadows and forest glades. The species most widely distributed in the European part of the USSR and in the Caucasus is axseed (C. varia), a toxic plant with pinkand-white flowers. It cannot be eaten by cattle in its fresh form, but mixed with hay it is safe for all species of cattle but not horses. Coronilla is a honey-bearing plant.
