The soft gray foliage
of Dorycnium hirsutum would be enough reason to plant the Hairy Canary Clover. I
chose it on that basis. Then I had the pleasant surprise of finding the
white-fading to pink flowers in the late Spring through Summer. Hairy Canary Clover gets to
18" tall and 4' across. Dorycnium hirsutum is hardy to the mid
teens to low 20°s F. The flowers fade away and don't need to be trimmed off. Dorycnium
hirsutum has been a great low maintenance plant. And there are always a few Hairy Canary
Clover seedlings to pass about each year.
