A large genus of around 626 accepted species of mostly annuals and perennials, occasionally shrubs in the Fabaceae (Fabaceae) family, native to the Americas, North Africa and the Mediterranean. They are characterised by their soft grey-green, usually deeply divided leaves and dense whorls of pea-like flowers held on erect spikes. They are legumes and as such are widely cultivated as forage crops and green manure. Horticultural varieties have long been extensively bred to produce a wide range of flower colours and patterns.
