The entire plant is beneficial and is commonly planted as a nitrogen fixing green manure crop, as it enriches your soil for all of your plants and the deep roots are great for breaking up compacted soils. The blossoms are sweet magenta/light pink pom-pom’s, which are quite lovely and much adored by bees of all kinds. The red clover blossoms have been traditionally used for bronchitis, whooping cough, and has long been known as a highly effective blood cleanser for detoxification.
