A perennial, capable of very high production (mainly spring, autumn) if fertility is high and moisture is adequate. Very suited to irrigation. Poor drought tolerance and of little use in low rainfall areas. However, a small amount is often added to pasture mixes in these drier areas in the hope it will survive in damp spots. White clover can also behave as an annual in drier areas, regenerating from seed when conditions are favourable. White clover uses stolons (stems running across the surface of the ground) to expand the size of plants and put down new roots.
- Widely adapted to soils
- Large leaved, upright perennial clover
- Good persistence under high stocking rates
- Performs well in moderate and subtropical regions
