Red Clover also has been used medicinally for 100s of years. Red clover is a short-lived herbaceous perennial plant that grows to a height of 15 to 36 inches (30 to 90 cm). It is easy to recognize red clover by its fine leafy stems, its leaves of three, and its rose-pink oval flower heads. When the crop is harvested for use as an herb (or for hay), the plants are cut during early bloom.
A field of red clover is an important resource for bumblebees. Honey bees have a shorter proboscis that cannot reach into the long flowers of red clover, so they will leave red clover to the bumblebees. Since bumble bees nest in the ground, it is to a grower's advantage to leave some wild areas near the planting of clover. Honey bees have some influence on seed yield, but bumblebees ensure a good seed crop.
