White Dutch clover is a low growing, introduced, perennial, stoloniferous legume that is highly palatable and nutritious. It stays low growing so it is not especially useful for pasture/hay fields. White Dutch has a relatively shallow (2′ maximum) root system but it can form a dense mat proving useful for erosion control. It requires moist soils to thrive, but in the presence of good moisture it can overtake all other grasses and plants. Being stoliniferous, White dutch will spread easily which is great for a monostand, but can stifle out other grasses in a mix if it gets too much water. White Dutch clover is typically used for clover turfs, in vineyards and orchards and as ground cover.
