An excellent lawn alternative or ground cover that can handle some foot traffic, buffalo clover is native from the Southernmost tip of Texas up to Nebraska. From Nebraska over to the east to Pennsylvania and south all the way down to Florida and up to Pennsylvania, the midwest and upper midwest and all the way up to Canada. 

 

Considered an at risk species, Buffalo Clover habitat loss has been very significant due to development and wildfires. Planting in it’s native range is highly encouraged.

It is native to much of the southeastern and northeastern United States and parts of Canada. See photo 3 for native range map.

 

the blooms are pink to red and very attractive to pollinators 

 

it is “nitrogen fixing,” which allows the plants to acquire nitrogen from the air and provide, rather then deplete nutrients from the soil. Planting other plants in the area where they were previously planted provides a nice rich soil for other plants.

 

Mix organic compost in with the soil to provide beneficial bacteria needed for clover so it is able to extract nitrogen from the air. This is called inoculation. You can also purchase this bacteria medium if your have particularly poor soil or you want to increase the blooms and growth of the clover. I personally just use compost and these are thriving. 

 

It is actually recommended to plant these in fall or spring for warmer regions and spring for cooler regions. These have the capability of providing a gorgeous field of flowers like a natural wildflower landscape. 

 

Annual, prolific seed producer for planting the next season or year round in warmer climates. Although it is an annual, it will re-seed itself and come back year after year, it can also act as a perennial in warm climates. Yes, it can be mowed! It is encouraged to take breaks from mowing to allow the flowers to produce seed heads and they can be collected and spread or allowed to sow in place. Mowing after the seed heads have developed will allow them to easily spread. They can also be collected and spread if you wish to fill in an entirely different area. Recommended for zones 4-10
