There is nothing more spectacular than a fields of colorful clovers. Here, is a combination of purple and white Owl’s Clover, mixed with Lupines and Poppies. These wildflowers are composed of pink-purple colored bracts, and yellow flower petals tinged with purple. The flowers and bracts collectively form narrow, showy plume-like spikes. The “bracts” are really small, modified leaves, not flower petals. The bract’s bright color, combined with the actual flowers, form a large visual target for pollinating insects and birds. For annuals, it is important that a seed crop be formed each year.
During spring, the presence of moisture triggers germination of Owl Clover’s seed; usually a portion of an annual’s seed supply remains dormant in the soil as a fail-safe mechanism. However, in years when precipitation is very abundant, Owl Clover may exhibit a mass flowering, producing a carpet of purple color.
Owl Clover is a member of the Snapdragon Family, which includes other well known plants such as snapdragon, speedwell, beard-tongue, foxglove, monkey
flower, and the well known, Indian paintbrush. The “brush” is a compact spike composed of red colored petals and bracts.

    Good description and such a lovely colourful photo

  • The clovers are almost gone. Sad to see them disappear. I count the springtimes that I have left to enjoy them. Thank You, as always for your support and compliments.

    wonderful colour. Wild lupines are just coming out here so hope to get some of them sans poppies and clover.

  • Sorry that you won’t have the poppies and clover but the lupines are almost overpowering. I just saw some photos from Texas (Lupines are called Bluebells in Texas). I have never seen such a sight. Fields and meadows and vacant lots and roadsides are colored in blue. Thanks for stopping by Yukondick.
