Red Feather Clover
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' high x 18" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Trifolium rubens (P-1198)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
