"Sainfoin," I guessed, remembering that stretch from my daily walk last summer. And I was right...
(But I may not have said this plant's name right, as I'm never sure in Saskatchewan how to pronounce Anglicized French words...)
Sanfoin is a forage crop from Europe that's gone wild and now brightens uncultivated fields and road allowances with its pin-striped red and pink flowers.
It's become a wildflower in the Prairies, though Sanfoin is not a native plant.
