Pink Serradella // Ornithopus sativus
Serratas is adapted to deep, well drained, sandy soils with low ph and low fertility levels. It is particularly tolerant of low phosphorous levels. It will also tolerate moderate to severe aluminium and manganese levels, both of which reduce the productivity and persistence of other legumes such as White and Sub clover and Lucerne.
