Alsike clover is adapted to cool, moist acidic soils and can tolerate more flooding than other clovers. Flower heads are pink or white and smaller than those of red clover. Blooms continue throughout the season, making it suitable for hay over an extended window. (Not for horses.) Excellent winter-hardiness, intolerant of drought and extreme heat. Alsike clover has a branched root system that penetrates deep into the subsoil. Good regrowth after cutting. Less shade tolerant than other clovers. Recommended seeding rate: 6-8 lbs/A.
Alsike must be inoculated with clover inoculant before planting for best results.
Note: Alsike Clover is toxic to horses.
