White Clover (Trifolium repens)

White clover is a low growing branching perennial that has both a tap root and stolons that allows it to spread. It likes higher moisture areas and has very good winter hardiness. Creeping nature suppresses weeds. It does well in blends due to its good shade tolerance.
