Description

Crimson Clover is an introduced winter annual legume growing 1-3’ tall with crimson-colored blooms.  Crimson clover is best adapted to well-drained loam and clay loam soils in higher rainfall areas of Texas, primarily east of Interstate Highway 35.  This legume is used for erosion control, as a cover crop, livestock and wildlife forage, and pollinator plant.  The showy blooms of this species also make it a common ornamental wildflower, although it will often outcompete native wildflower species.

Crimson clover is a showy forage species and provides good benefits to pollinators.  For pastures, it provides grazing from February-May.

Planting Rate: 15-20 lbs per acre
