Tout comme le Machaon, le Vulcain, ou l'Amaryllis, le Belle-Dame figure parmi les papillons de prairie dont la population régresse considérablement : le nombre de papillons de prairie a globalement diminué d'au moins 30 % depuis 1990 selon une étude de l'Agence Européenne pour l'Environnement. Le Trèfle incarnat est une plante légumineuse de la famille des fabacées cultivée comme plante fourragère pour l'alimentation des vaches laitières et des chevaux, le Trèfle Farouch est également utilisé comme engrais naturel riche en azote et comme plante mellifère.
