Red Clover, Purple Clover, Trefoil.
Fabacaea (Pea Family)
Mounding to sprawling. 1ft tall and 2ft wide.
Full sun. Will grow in many soil types but enjoys poor soil that is well-drained.
Seeds germinate easily and can be direct sown in fall or spring, or started in flats in the spring and then transplanted.
As a member of the legume family, red clover is a nitrogen fixer increasing soil fertility.
The blossoms can be harvested once the majority of the tiny flowers are open in the individual flower heads. Red clover blooms most prolifically in June but can be harvested throughout the season. The blossoms can be used fresh or dried. They dry well but the dried herb begins to brown and loose its sweet flavour after about 10 months or so.
Flowers can be added to salads or used as a garnish.
Red clover is used as an alterative to clear skin conditions. It is especially good for children as it is safe and also contains many beneficial vitamins and minerals important for growth and development.
It is useful for whooping cough, and other inflammations of the respiratory tract.
Red Clover is a folk remedy for infertility. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the tea is effective at reliev- ing unexplained infertility and assisting in achieving pregnancy. This may be due to the phytoestrogens contained in the herb, or perhaps the vitamin and mineral content.
