Trifolium rubens ‘Red Feather’

This is a clover, but not just any clover. It is the most ornamental of all Clovers and definitely worth adding to your garden. Best of all, your friends will never guess what it is.

The plant makes a nice clump and looks good all summer. The flowers are peculiar in that each stem has two flowers, one larger than the other.
