Red Clover (Trifolium pratens)

A patch of Red Clover in your garden will add a stunning field of bright blooms to your yard. Individually, the flower appears as a full round bloom made of long, thin flower petals. In a grouping, the green leaves of this perennial herb wonderfully accent the colorful dark pink flower. It will grow quickly in the spring and the blooms will bring butterflies to your garden. Bursting with charm and color, the Red Clover is an excellent addition to any butterfly garden.
