Exactly what I wanted

This Persian clover grew marvelously in my back yard last summer, despite my free-ranging chickens. (I didn't keep them away from it, even right after I'd scattered the seed.) The chickens loved it, the bees (both honey and native) loved it, and various other beneficials loved it, too. It spread well and did a darned good job out-competing most of the weeds that're all the will grow here (5b, along the arid Front Range of Colorado) if you don't water. (Granted, it was somewhat wetter last May than normal when I spread the seed, but it survived the summer regardless.) It even handled being mowed well (mowed once to get the other weeds under control).

I had to be very careful where I stepped when it was blooming. :) I will definitely be buying more when it is back in stock.
