Trifolium rubens

Ruddy clover



A clump-forming perennial, bearing large, ruby-red flowers throughout summer, which contrast beautifully with trifoliate, clover-like foliage. Like all clovers, its blooms are a magnet for bees and it would make a fine addition to a wildlife garden.

Cut back spent blooms after flowering to encourage a second flush.

Likes a moist but well-drained, fertile soil, in full sun or partial shade.

Height 60cm x Spread 60cm
