What are the pros? flowers attract many insects
What are the cons? Too rarely cultivated!
I sowed the seeds in September 2016, hardly covering them with soil. Over the winter the clover plants lingerd on about 2 inches tall, until they re-started growing in spring. They bloomed for me in mid-May, attracting many insects but also humans around our garden. Everyone walking past it stopped to ask what they were and where they could buy them. Each one of the many spike inflorescences lasted about 2 weeks and since they don't all flower at the same time we have had a beautiful flowering cycle throughout May and June. However, the clover plants don't just look good, they also have many other uses: They feed insects (mostly bumble bees), cover the ground and the nitrogen fixing bacteria on their roots enrich the soil. I'll definately share the seeds to spread them at least locally. This is definately an underestimated plant suitable for almost every garden.
