Common Bird's-Foot Trefoil is a perennial herbaceous plant, similar in appearance to some clovers. The name 'bird's foot' refers to the appearance of the seed pods on the stalks.
The botanical illustration was first published in the year 1885 in "Flora von Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz" by Prof. Dr. Otto Wilhelm Thomé.
Otto Wilhelm Thomé (1840–1925) was a German botanist and botanical artist from Cologne, Germany.
