白色 prairie clover is a native, warm-season 常年 leguminous forb adapted to the central two-thirds of the United States. It is typically found growing on well-drained sandy, gravelly and silt-type soils. 白色 prairie clover favors the mid-to-short grass prairies receiving 10 to 20 inches of annual rainfall. It is a very desirable component of warm-season grass plantings because of its nitrogen-fixing capability. It is readily grazed by all classes of livestock and is an important browse species for deer, elk and upland game birds. The bright green foliage and white cylindrical flowers make it a favorite in low maintenance gardens and wildflower plantings in low rainfall areas. 白色 prairie clover is not an aggressive species and works very well in prairie mixes.

*Special considerations for spring germination: seed germination can be improved with mechanical scarification. Seed needs to be inoculated with Rhizobium for nitrogen fixation to occur. Germination of scarified seed generally occurs within 2 weeks after planting provided adequate soil moisture and temperature conditions are met.
