Trifolium can be used both indoors and out
White clover can be used both indoors and out. Its sculptural growth makes it fun to have in the living room, on its own in a pot, in plant arrangements or as individual decorations. A white clover decoration also livens up a garden table. So the plant has many areas of use. See the suggestions for use under Inspiration.
Very decorative summer and winter
White clover is a good year-round plant. Its delightfully-coloured leaves and aromatic flowers make it very decorative in the summer in pots and window boxes and it also makes excellent ground cover in beds.
It is quite remarkable in the winter as it remains attractive even at low temperatures. But frost and a temperature of -5 degrees Celsius will cause it to fade, although it will perk up again when the frost thaws. It will wither away at lower temperatures, but no more than it will begin to sprout again as soon as spring arrives. This makes white clover ideal for planting in pots during the autumn together with other plants that can live through the winter. The colour of the leaves becomes more intense when it is chilly.
White clover can also be planted in pots in the early spring as a basis and other plants that are suitable for the various seasons can be planted together with it. White clover become more full-bodied during the course of the year, which is the reason why it makes a really good basis.
Easy to look after
White clover is extremely easy to look after. It thrives in full sunshine but can also be planted in shadier places. It should be watered regularly, but if it does dry out it will revive as soon as it is watered again.
If the plants should become too long and straggly they can be cut back immediately above the soil, after which they will sprout again and become more attractive and compact.
