Trifolium repens. White Clover is a fine source of nectar and pollen for honey bees. Usually both yellow and white are used by beekeepers because yellow may bloom as much as two weeks before white, and a combination of the two extends the flowering season.

White Clover is considered a short clover and many homeowners include it in their lawn. It germinates and establishes fast, is dependable and persists. White Clover is the most popular clover seed for lawn alternatives. It grows vigorously in poor clay soil.

White Clover thrives best in a cool, moist climate in soils with ample lime, phosphate, and potash. In general, White Clover is best adapted to clay and silt soils in humid and irrigated areas. It grows successfully on sandy soils with a high water table or irrigated droughty soils when adequately fertilized. White Clover seldom roots deeper than 2 feet, which makes it adapted to shallow soils when adequate moisture is available.
