Crimson Clover (per pound). Sold in 1# increments. Full seeding rates at 10-15#/acre. If seeding in a clover mix, reduce rate to 3-5# per acre. It can also be included in a native mix to suppress annual weeds at a rate of 0.5-1# per acre. Plant 6-8 weeks before the first frost (early Aug - October) in the fall or in early spring plantings. 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.
