Abstract

MANY people will be surprised to see Melilotus described as a weed, but, besides having certain advantageous properties, it can also prove most undesirable. Originating from Southern Asia and the Mediterranean region, it has spread widely and is now naturalised in many countries, including the southern parts of Australia. Although favouring limestone soils, especially in coastal situations, Melilotus will grow on a variety of soil types and has been found considerable distances inland.
