Trifolium hirtum Annual cool season legume cover crop. Reseeding annual thrives in the harsh conditions of poor, rocky soils and moderate rainfall (10 or more). Great pioneer, but other clovers will out-compete it when soil quality improves. Moderate Nitrogen fixer (75-100 lb/acre), grow to 18, and commonly used in vineyards, wildlife plantings, and rangelands. Produces a palatable feed, very high in protein. Beautiful dusty rose blossoms are attractive to bees and beneficials. Earliest maturing, best winter grower. Tolerates a minimum temperature of 10°F. Plant in early to mid fall 0.25"-0.5 deep at .25-1 lb/1000 sq ft or 15-25 lb/acre. Raw seed requires Alfalfa-Clover inoculant.
