It makes great tea, fixes nitrogen (symbiotically of course) and it
is clonal so it will spread without having to seed. The Fabaceae form
symbioses with rhyzobia which are common in many soils, so I would be
surprised if the lack of their symbiont was the reason for the species
failing. The way to be more confident in that assessment is to dig
them up and see if the roots are nodulating. If they are then they
have most likely found the rhyzobia and are failing due to other
causes. Hope this helps.
