This ornamental clover is not only much loved by bees but makes a good cut flower. The flower spikes are soft to the touch and dusky-pink in colour. The foliage is interesting, in that it resembles that of peanut plants.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow February-May in well drained compost, covering with a dusting of fine vermiculite or sieved compost. Aim to maintain a temperature of around 20C/75F until germination, which usually takes 14-30 days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, move them into individual pots and grow on, planting out after all risk of frost is past.
