White Clover

(Trifolium repens)

White clover, found throughout the US, is a shallow rooted winter perennial legume which spreads by stolons or above ground runners. The plant takes root from the stolons at nodes alont the stems when they come in contact with the soil.

Good turf management practices, including good liming and a nitrogen fertilization program, will encourage a dense stand of turf and make it difficult for clover to become established.
