Dutch White Clover is a slow-growing, nitrogen-fixing perennial clover used for lawns, ground cover, erosion control, cover crop, and in food plot and pasture mixtures. It is often used to minimize soil compaction and improve soil health. Dutch White Clover usually matures between 4 to 8 inches in height. It is winter hardy, tolerates wet conditions, withstands moderate drought conditions, tolerates shade and may be used in high traffic areas, including permanent walkways and turf grass mixes. Dutch White may be frost seeded, or can be seeded in early spring and fall. Once established, it provides long-term cover and the roots fix nitrogen for companion crops.

I've ordered this Dutch White from Merit twice now, and have covered my front & back yards in it. During the months with little to no rain, my yard looks like a paradise compared to the neighbors' dead/dying lawns. The wild rabbits love it, the deer love it, and I love it because it distracts the rabbits from my garden. In the spring the bees go absolutely crazy over the flowers, and I don't mind helping those guys out too. Just ordered some more today so I can cover some bald spots.
Planted 2lb of this in 5 different places. None of it germinated. Very disappointing.
Frost seeded an area that was 50% grass/50% weeds that had been mowed the previous fall, but no other prep. VERY happy with the results!! Have deer visiting it every day.
