Low-growing perennial clover whose white flowers you often see in lawns.
Its relative durability under foot traffic makes it useful for paths especially in vegetable gardens, which can use the nitrogen.
Will grow in more shade than grass.
As a lawn, it is self-fertilizing, thick-growing, needs little or no mowing and looks lush, though it will not take as much abuse as grass. Likes moist soil.
BOTANICAL NAME: Trifolium repens
Sow in spring for harvest in the fall or sow in autumn for harvest the following spring. Broadcast carefully; seed is tiny so mixing it with some fine soil may make it easier to spread evenly. Keep moist until germinated and protect from birds when tiny. Often used in lawns and is attractive to bees. Can tolerate shade and traffic so makes a good living mulch for pathways or around perennial plants. Seed is coated with an OMRI-approved inoculant.
