Red Feather Clover

Trifolium rubens


Trifolium rubens full sun

Denoting good luck, this easily cultivated perennial legume is quite ornamental. Bushy, upright clumps of signature tripetaled, medium green leaves, give rise to huge silvery buds, which open to become bright crimson candles of bloom. Borne on long stems, the soft flowers come in droves, and are choice for drawing bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. Create a stylized meadow by planting it amongst Lupinus ‘The Governor’ and Pennisetum ‘Hameln’.

Size: 2' 0" high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Trifolium rubens (P-1198)

Customer Comment:

“The clematis I ordered was especially impressive--nicely staked, sporting two new shoots.  The roots of all the plants were very well developed and I'm looking forward to enjoying all of them this season and many more to come.”
