New Zealand Type White Clover

New Zealand White Clover
Highly palatable, often used in pasture mixures west of the Cascade range. As a pasture plant, white clover yields are greatest in mild humid climates. Best adapted to well-drained silt loam and clay soils with a pH range from 6.0 to 7.0 in humid and irrigated areas. With adequate soil moisture and fertility, it can be grown on sandy soils. It is not tolerant of saline or highly alkaline soils. The plant is shallow-rooted, seldom goes deeper than 2 feet. For pastures, white clover is almost always seeded with grass to prevent bloat and reproductive problems. The flower color is usually white, but may be slightly pinkish.
Seeding rate 6 to 8 lbs/acre.
