Deep Red flowering vetch.
This is a great red flowering variety for Spring to summer in the border. We recommend borders as this is quite a large plant in maturity but will add great foliage and colour to even the poorest of soil types. Place in a sunny position for best results. A perfect plant for bees, hoverflies and other insects.
Hardiness: Fully Hardy
This plant is a joy to have in the garden. It will seed itself around the area local to itself. A perfect plant to attract insects. Just trim back old flower stems occasionally.
