Trifolium repens Seeds

Trifolium repens is wild White Clover. A compact, low growing perennial plant with masses of small oval creamy white flowers from May to September. Classified as Perfect for Pollinators by the RHS, White Clover is excellent for a wide range of insects including Bees which are attracted by its nectar and Butterflies, some of which lay their eggs on this plant.

White Clover is lovely in wildflower meadows and also grow really well in grass verges and less manicured areas of lawn where they scramble and mingle amongst other wildflowers. They love full sun.
