It is grown widely in the eastern and northern mid-western states, and in the Pacific Northwest from bulk clover seeds. Similar in many ways to red clover, it matures a week to ten days earlier.

Arrowleaf Clover (Trifolium Vesiculosum) - This legume can be used for grazing, hay, haylage, or greenchop, but it is most commonly grown for grazing. A good clover stand often produces 1 1/2 to over 2 tons of dry forage per acre, which is equal to or better than other annual clovers commonly grown in the United States. Arrowleaf clover can grow up to four feet tall if not grazed.Arrowleaf Clover (Trifolium Vesiculosum) - This legume can be used for grazing, hay, haylage, or greenchop, but it is most commonly grown for grazing.

Contact your local garden center to ask about the success of clover in your region. Most landscape professionals recommend a ratio of 15-20% clover seed to 80-85% drought-tolerant grass seed suitable for your area and location. Since clover is not as hardwearing as grass, a mix ensures your lawn will withstand foot traffic and won’t need regular reseeding. However, new micro-clovers developed in the last few decades offer more resilient varieties that many people are choosing to sow in much higher concentrations—up to 100%. Whatever mix you choose, the balance of clover and grasses will change over time and reach an equilibrium that works well for your soil type and local conditions. (Source: learn.eartheasy.com)
