Crownvetch grows 1 to 2 feet tall and bears small clusters of 1/2-inch purple flowers from early summer to late fall. The variety  produces mounds of purple flowers. Crownvetch is a tough, aggressive spreading plant that will crowd out its neighbors in a show garden but is well suited to a sunny bank, where it will grow for decades with little to no fertilizing, mowing, or weeding since the thick foliage prevents weeds from growing amongst it. Its deep, tenacious, complex root system and thick, fern-like leaves provide excellent control where it is used as a ground cover. However, this legume has a very long germination period of about 6 months and does not create full coverage until two or three years later.
