Crimson Clover

Annual. Also known as Italian Clover. Nitrogen-fixing legume often grown for livestock feed or wildlife forage, yet pretty enough for the flower garden! Crimson flower heads are great bee forage. Planted thickly, also makes a superior cover or green manure crop, with its ability to smother out weeds and fix atmospheric nitrogen into the soil. This lovely, versatile plant should be much more widely grown!

What are the pros? good for soil, bees love it

What are the cons? none

Review:

I initially got this because I had an eroding hillside with very poor soil (sand atop clay), and I wanted to fill in some bare spots with a self-seeding ground cover while also improving the soil and providing forage for bees. It's a sensitive area, next to a wild canyon, and I didn't want to plant something noxious. This plant was the perfect choice. It spreads nicely but not like wildfire. It's useful, edible, and the bees love it. I ended up deciding to tear up what little remained of my lawn and seed the crimson clover there too. So much better than grass in every way. My vegetable garden is also happy that so many bees are stopping by.

What are the pros? Very easy to grow

Review:

Needed ground cover to crowd out weeds & for looks. Seeds are large, easy to sow. I put them down in winter (Arizona) & they all germinated. Thrived even after two nights of 33F, none froze or wilted. Every patch I sowed them they sprouted. I can't wait for the pretty red blooms. I planted some out by our mailbox too because of the weeds growing around it. Put this anywhere. Mine even is growing in shady spots.

What are the pros? flowers attract many insects

What are the cons? Too rarely cultivated!

Review:

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.

Review:

Summer of 2016 we first planted our new edible landscaping garden. It is located in our front yard so we attempted to use nice looking plants between larger ones or as ground cover while larger plants grew to full size. This clover grew quickly and the flowers are beautiful. When it started drying up we simply used it as mulch. We did several plantings throughout the summer and fall in our northern garden. It is a very handy plant!

Review:

I haven't grown this as a cover crop yet, but as a flower display, and the flowers are not to be missed! It has reseeded itself and I can't wait to see it bloom again.
