Rare wildflower in Sapcote village centre
Crown Vetch has been recorded growing near to the centre of Sapcote. This plant is very uncommon in our area, and when the whole of the Leicestershire flora was last recorded in the 1970s it was not found at all! More
The plant was found growing near the base of a telephone pole on Hinckley Road opposite the entrance to Dovecote Close. It is possibly the only record of the plant in Leicestershire, with the only other known site in our area being Ketton in Rutland.
