Trifolium General Information

Easy to grow, Trifolium rubens is the most ornamental of all clovers. Provides green fertilizer by adding nitrogen to the soil. Helps break up denser soils and prevents erosion. Dry seed heads are an attractive tan color. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Trifolium Plant Care

Prefers an average alkaline soil with adequate level of fertility and consistent moisture. Likes plenty of water but not extremes in temperature. Allow seeds to fall to ensure future generations of plants. Can be cut back to maintain shape and freshen foliage. Will self sow.
