How do you all feel about crown vetch (Securigera varia)? I have an east-facing riverbank that's eroding badly. I wonder if crown vetch, with its deep roots and aggressive attitude, could protect the spots where a tree has fallen into the river. Do you think 4-5 hours of morning sun is enough to get it established?
