Plant Overview

Everyone's favourite good luck charm - a four-leaved clover.

Brilliant dark purple, four-leafed clover. The leaves are edged with fresh green and white flowers emerge from May to September. 

Easy to grow and suitable for use in summer bowls, or to create extra colour and texture in alpine containers. It can just as well go in the border, rockery or over paving.

Will gradually spread to form a good size.

Height and Spread: 15cm x 30cm.

Common names: Four-leaved Clover; White Clover.

This alpine plant may be supplied in either a 7cm or 9cm pot, depending on the time of year.

All our plants are supplied in 9cm pots unless otherwise specified. Plants in this size pot establish quickly in the garden and often outpace plants in bigger pots planted at the same time. Our potted plants can be planted immediately, unless otherwise noted, or you can leave them in their pots until you are ready to plant.
The majority of our plants are grown outdoors. This means that they follow their natural growth patterns and are ready to plant at any time of the year. If you order the plants in winter, they are likely to be dormant and died back to ground level, ready to shoot again in spring - just like the herbaceous perennials in your own garden. Very occasionally, in winter, we may indicate on the packing slip that a plant needs to be hardened off before planting out. This will be because it has just come out of a polytunnel. If you have any questions about our plants or growing methods, please feel free to drop us an email.
We grow most of what we sell ourselves, in our nursery in the Buckinghamshire countryside. Our prices include VAT at 20%.
