White Clover is the world’s most popular clover and is widely adapted within the United States.  White Dutch Clover is a strain of white clover that originated in Holland.  It is a low growing perennial that is best suited to moist, well-drained, fertile soils.  Being a legume, white clover is able to take nitrogen from the air and fix it in the soil through action of bacteria on their roots.  Many years ago white clover was a component of turfgrass mixtures only to fall out of favor with the introduction of  selective herbicides.  Today they are once again gaining popularity as a more eco friendly addition to lawns as white clover can supply up to 1/3 of the nitrogen needs for grasses.  It produces white flowers throughout the year and develops prostrate stems that root freely.  Grows 4-8 inches high.
