    A very good source of pollen and nectar for honeybees, solitary bees, short-tongued bumblebees, and to a lesser extent, long tongued bees. There are several species of small beetle that feed on the foliage.

    It is a caterpillar food plant of the Brown Argus, Green Hairstreak and Silver Studded Blue butterflies.
