New Zealand White Clover



White Clover

(Trifolium Repens L)


            White Clover is a high quality, cool season, short-lived perennial legume that is well adapted to all areas of the Northeast and Eastern Canada.  Once established, It grows rapidly and spreads via above ground stems or stolens.  However, white clover has a shallow root system which makes it intolerant of droughty soils.  It grows best during cool, moist weather on well-drained, fertile soils with a pH between 6 and 7.  Because of its low growth habit, it is normally planted with a grass and used mainly for pasture.

            There are at least 2 general types of white clover which are indistinguishable from one another except for their size.

            Common or white dutch clovers are low growing with short leaf stems petioles.  Their yield is low but they persist better under heavy continuous grazing than the larger, taller growing Lodino types.
