Strawberry Clover

  1. Horse Pasture

Strawberry Clover Seed (Trifolium Fragiferum) Strawberry clover is perennial clover that is similar to White Clover in growth habit. It can be used as a lawn grass alternative, as groundcover in orchards and vineyards or for green manure cover crop applications. Strawberry clover is generally used in mixtures with grass and wildflowers to produce an alternative lawn for large areas. It can be planted solo for smaller lawn areas.

Strawberry Clover, as are all clovers, is a legume which are soil nitrogen fixers so there is no need to use expensive and harmful chemical nitrogen fertilizers.

Adapted to wet saline and alkaline soils, Strawberry Clover will also tolerate flooding and is the most saline (salt) tolerant clover available. It has, in the past, been used as principally a pasture plant that is somewhat drought resistant. Strawberry clover develops a good sod, and is very palatable for grazing animals. It has also been used as groundcover in orchards and vineyards and for green manure cover crop applications. Forage and seeds of strawberry clover are also used by big and small game and upland birds.
