Part of the clover family, Trifolium rubens is 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.
Grow Trifolium rubens in moist but well-drained, fertile soil, in full sun or partial shade. Cut back spent blooms after flowering to encourage a second flush.
