Strawberry Clover - Palestine

Trifolium fragiferum

  • Hard Seeded Strawberry Clover
  • Most Soil Types
  • Prostrate growing perennial clover with vigorous spring/summer growth
  • Good production in winter and early spring
  • Withstands water logging and saline conditions

    Strawberry Clover: A long lived, prostrate, perennial clover that tolerates poorly drained, moderately alkaline and saline soil. These are conditions in which white, red and subterranean clovers either grow poorly or do not persist. Strawberry clover is most productive on heavy neutral to alkaline soils of reasonable fertility. In other conditions it may compare poorly with the other clovers. Continuous grazing that reduces competition from grasses favours strawberry clover. It spreads by both seed and stolons. Stolons are stems spreading across the surface of the ground that can put down roots, establishing new crowns. Also ideal as a cover crop in mixtures with other perennial clovers.
