Alsike Clover (Trifolium Hybridum) - Alsike clover is a short-lived perennial plant, alsike clover lacks persistence so is treated agriculturally as a biennial. It is grown widely in the eastern and northern mid-western states, and in the Pacific Northwest from bulk clover seeds. Similar in many ways to red clover, it matures a week to ten days earlier.
Crimson Clover Dixie (Trifolium Incarnatum) - A winter annual, crimson clover is grown from bulk clover seeds from the Gulf Coast region to Southern Ohio clear to the West Coast. It is tolerant of medium soil acidity and will grow readily on both sandy and clay type soils. It is an important winter annual forage in the south, with growth continuing through the winter with the amount influenced by temperature.
Ladino Clover (Trifolium Repens Latum) - Ladino clover is a large white perennial bulk clover which makes up about half the total white clover acreage in the U.S. Its high nutritive value and palatability make it a popular choice in pasture mixtures. It is not deep rooted, and will not tolerate much drought. It is two to four times as large as common white clover.
Miniclover® has one of the smallest leaf blades of any clover and only grows approximately 4 inches tall. This is the best perennial clover to use when adding a clover to a lawn to help fixate nitrogen and keep the lawn healthy. It is not aggressive like White Dutch Clover and the leaf blade is approximately 1/2 of the size. Best clover seed for lawns.
New Zealand (Trifolium Repens) - Haifa white clover is a perennial, highly palatable clover, often used in pasture mixtures west of the Cascade range. As a pasture plant, white clover yields are greatest in mild humid climates. Best adapted to well-drained silt loam and clay soils with a pH range from 6.0 to 7.0 in humid and irrigated areas.
Red Clover (Trifolium Pratense) - Red clover is the most widely adapted of the true clovers. These short-lived perennial clover seeds are grown in Canada and most of the U.S. except the Great Plains states and the southwest. Mixes well with grass, used for hay, pasture, and soil improvement.
Strawberry Clover Palestine (Trifolium Fragiferum) - Strawberry clover is a perennial clover similar to white dutch clover in growth habit. Spreads by above ground stolons, similar to strawberries. Adapted to wet saline and alkaline soils and can tolerate a wide range of soils. Will tolerate flooding. It is principally a pasture plant that is somewhat drought resistant. Strawberry clover develops a good sod, and is very palatable.
Subterranean Clover (Trifolium Subterraneum) - Subterranean clover is an annual clover well adapted to warm moist winter and dry summers. Flourishes in Australia, used as a rangeland legume in Western Oregon and California. Suitable for foothills and non-irrigated pastures. A portion of the seed head buries in the soil giving this clover its name and causes a difficult seed harvest
Yellow Sweet Clover (Melilotus Officinalis) - Biennial sweet clover thrives under a wide range of soil and climatic conditions. However, it will not tolerate acid soils. It is drought resistant, winter-hardy and productive throughout all 50 states.
White Dutch Clover (Trifolium Repens) - White Dutch Clover designates a strain of white clover which is perennial. Used in lawns, as a ground cover, cover crop, for erosion control, and in pasture mixtures. Popular clover seed for lawns; however, Miniclover® is a better lawn alternative.
