While the names are similar, crimson clove is different than red clover. This annual clover has larger, elongated flower heads with deep red, long-lasting blossoms that invite beneficial insects such as ladybugs and bees. Like other clovers, crimson clover fixes nitrogen, but it's fast-growing for quick benefits to your garden. Crimson clover grows best in cool weather, so grow it as a spring or fall cover crop. For maximum nitrogen, till, mow, or cut back with a weed trimmer at end of bloom and before seeds form. Grows in a variety of soils but does best if soil is well drained. Plants tolerate some shade so you can sow crimson clover in between rows or under tall plants, such as with corn or under fruit trees. A beautiful addition to fill spots in flower beds and borders. Flowers can be harvested and dried to make a delicious tea with a light refreshing flavor.
