Its special merit is its adaptation to wet soils, even tolerating some flooding. It is more tolerant to both acid and alkaline soils than other clovers. The stems are quite slender, up to 3 feet long, and tend to be prostrate except in dense stands. The trifoliate leaves are long stemmed with obovate leaflets. Flower heads are not at the terminal of the main stem but are at the terminals of branch stems.
- White or pink in color. Both stems and leaves are smooth.
- Valuable both for pasture and hay on soils too wet or too acid for other clovers.
- Seeding Depth: 1/4"-1/2" deep in well prepared seedbed.
- Longevity: Perennial.
- Seed Count: 680,000 seeds/lb
Worked with Jordan to develop a mix of your Alsike clover with a bit of Berseem clover added. This mix was planted into a damp, clay based, loamy area. This plot exceeded my expectations. Between the deer and turkey's, this plot is always being used, and the growth has been phenomenal. As a bonus, my honey production as increased by at least 40% due to the Alsike. Highly recommended!!
