Europe native legume that is grown as a forage, cover crop, and green manure.  It may be annual or biennial. It has a shallow root system. Stems may grow 2 to 5 feet long. Leaves bearing several leaflets grow perpendicular to the stem, and may terminate in tendrils. Stems and leaves of hairy vetch are pubescent (covered with a soft woolly fuzz) and tufts are present at the tips of stems. Flowers are purple. Seeds are round and black, and develop inside elongated and flattened pods.

Hairy vetch is a hardy type of vetch suited to wetter soil and colder winters than other winter-active legumes. Hairy vetch develops best under cool temperature conditions, on fertile loam soils; it is also productive on sandy or clay soils. It has been reported to grow well on light soils that are too sandy for crimson clover. It is only moderately sensitive to soil acidity.
