DUTCH WHITE CLOVER
Perennial - Permanent Plant Height: 3 to 6 inches
Combines well with grass in lawns. Its flowers are loved by bees, helping to encourage a pollinator-friendly habitat. As a legume, it helps build soil fertility and drought resistance. An established mixed grass and clover lawn does not require much, if any, application of fertilizer, compared to all grass lawns.
Special Directions For Short Season Climates
SOWING: Add 1 ounce of clover to 1 pound of grass seed for new lawns. Scatter clover seeds throughout an existing lawn at the rate of 1 ounce for every 500 to 1,000 square feet. Clover seed is best sown in Spring, or again in late summer through early fall.
GERMINATION: 5 to 7 days. Keep planting area moderately moist during germination.
