White Ladina clover is a relatively tall growing, introduced, perennial, stoloniferous legume that is highly palatable and nutritious. It is frequently used as a legume in pasture and hay fields since its growth pattern is taller than its cousin, White Dutch Clover. White Ladino 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 other grasses and plants so a light planting rate of clover is recommended. Being stoliniferous, White Ladino will spread easily which is great for a monostand, but can stifle out other grasses in a mix if it gets too much water.
