White Clover:                           White Clover3

White clover is a creeping perennial broadleaf plant.  True leaves consist of three leaflets giving it the common identification as the “3 leaf clover”.

White clover blooms from March through October. Tiny, white to pale pink flowers cluster into egg-shaped flower heads.

White Clover2White clover can tolerate close mowing, and can grow on many different types of soil, but prefers clay.  White Clover seed was once added to grass seed mixes as it provides a green ground cover in areas that grass seed struggle to perform.  Due to its invasiveness, this practice has been discontinued.

A selective broadleaf herbicide applied in early spring and early summer is the best defense against a clover outbreak.  Post emergent herbicides are effective in turf areas throughout the growing season. White Clover
