Trifolium repens “Dragon’s Blood”-Variegated Clover

Propagating Variegated Clover should be done in the spring or fall by dividing/ separating the crown. Bees will love the clover for its blooms and many butterfly and moth caterpillars use clover as food but don’t plant this species where it will overtake another. It is an evergreen in warmer climates and grows to a height of 4"-5". Variegated leaves of green, white and red and will do well in clay poor soils. Since clover is a legume it does affix nitrogen to the soil but do not plant around camellias or gooseberries.
