Clover, Crimson (Trifolium incarnatum) Cover Crop Seed, Organic


Family: Legume (Fabaceae)

Fall or spring planted annual cover crop. Crimson Clover: truly luxurious blossoms; the ability to quickly produce a monotypic stand that discourages growth of weedy species; fixes 150 lbs of pure nitrogen per acre; carbon-rich (builds soil). The fresh or dried herb also makes a salutary tea. Crimson clover prefers cool weather and moist but well-drained soils of about pH 6.5. This Clover is often used as an intercrop in orchards and vineyards, or under-sown to corn when corn is knee high. Sown in the fall, the plants overwinter as small rosettes and progress quickly to flower in the spring. Sown in the spring, quickly covers disturbed soil with rich green beauty.  Seed is raw organic, no treatments of any kind.
