Trifolium ochroleucum

Sulphur clover

Very popular with the long tongued bee, this is one of our own native plants that's fast disappearing from the meadows, fields and roadsides of the British countryside. 

It is found largely on the eastern side of the country where soil is chalky and dry. 

It is a large clover growing to 45cm tall with trifoliate green leaves. 

Creamy-yellow flowers are borne in rounded flower heads 2-4cm across in summer and are a good nectar source for all kinds of bees and butterflies plus the roots retain and fix nitrogen. Very tough, this is a sensible addition to wildflower schemes or prairie plantings.
