Alsike Clover Seed
Back

Alsike Clover is a short-lived, non-creeping perennial clover with a growth habit similar to red clover and can be used for hay, pasture, soil improvement, and wildlife food plot. Alsike Clover, when flowering is especially attractive to bees. This clover prefers very wet or acidic soils and is typically planted in a mixture with grasses. This clover pre-inoculated and will not require any further inoculant prior to planting.

Product Information

  • Application or Use: Hay Production, Cattle Grazing, Livestock Forage, Bee Attractant, Cover Crop, Wildlife Food Plot, Soil Amendment
  • Germination Time: 7 - 14 days, under optimal conditions
  • Growing Locations: Warm Season, Transition Zone, Cool Season
  • Height: 2 - 4 feet 
  • Sunlight Requirements: 6 - 8 hours, full sun for best results
  • Advantages: Easy to grow perennial clover with substantial soil amendment capabilities.

Product Detail

  • Short-lived, non-creeping perennial clover
  • Bee attractant when flowering
  • Great for soil improvement
  • Adapted to a wide range of soils
  • Survives severe winters 


Product Information

Alsike Clover can reach a height of 2-4 feet and tends to recline unless planted with companion plants to hold it upright. This clover doesn’t have the crescent-shaped marks on the leaves that red clover has. This clover can cause bloating and should be fed to livestock with care.

Alsike Clover is adapted to a wide range of soils, and grows well in the northern USA and at higher elevations. This clover can survive severe winters, and preforms best where the summers are cool. It tolerates wet soil, prefers full sun, and is not shade tolerant.

If planting in the Fall, be sure there is 6 weeks of growing season before first frost.
