Day 64: Red Clover

“Red Clover is the most widely grown meadow clover, and is also used for hay and as green manure. The plant is a perennial, reaching a height of two feet (60 cm). The leaflets may be notched at the tip and have a light-colored blotch or stripe. The flowers bloom in large, elongated rose-purple heads. The bumblebee is the only known insect that can reach the deep-seated nectar cups of red clover. In its efforts to obtain the nectar the bee also pollinates the blossoms. This is necessary for seed production.” (Source)
