Very useful in a meadow or grown within another low growing shrub where its flowers can add interest to the display. It prefers full sun and a well drained soil.
This variety does not like acidic soils or soils with high Nitrogen levels such. Not to be confused with the Greater Birdsfoot trefoil
Sow the seeds late Autumn for best results - The seeds may germinate prior to dying back and then re-emerging the following Spring although the majority should not germinate until the following Spring. They can be sown where they are to grow or in pots and left outside (a coldframe is ideal) Cover lightly and make sure they do not fully dry out.
These can be grown at any time of year but best germination rates are obtained from later overwintered sowings as this mimics there natural method of propagation
Finally plant out in final position in Partial shade with a non acidic soil.
