Lots of water here this year, got a few new things appearing. Have never seen this. Can you folks help us out?
We have alpacas and wanted to know if it's a safe thing to have around? Can't locate it anywhere... www, 'Weeds of the West', etc.
No pictures posted but here is a link to the pics.

AKA.. Purple Prairie Clover
This plant is highly palatable and nutritious for many animals... including alpacas!
Need some seeds rather than a mower !!
Thanks, Joe
