Crimson clover is an introduced annual legume. This quick establishing legume is easy to grow and tolerant of poor soils and can be effectively added to native conservation mixes for immediate cover to reduce weed competition and soil erosion. As an annual, it dies out in the second year and will not persist in your native planting. It is highly attractive to both pollinators and deer and produces insects valuable to young chicks. Crimson clover is already included in some PF mixes (0.2-0.5 #s per acre). It may be purchased separately per pound. Do not exceed 5#s per acre.
