Crimson Clover’s strawberry-red blooms add fun color to any meadow. Growing to be 24-36” tall, we recommend planting this variety at the front of the garden or meadow. Not to be confused with the tough perennial red clovers that can take over a meadow, Crimson Clover is a non-invasive annual that can help enhance your soil and attract pollinators to the garden or meadow. Gorgeous on its own or paired with other wildflowers. All of the seed we handle at American Meadows is non-GMO, neonicotinoid-free and guaranteed to grow. Annual.

This is the only meadow clover we recommend. Do not confuse it with the tough perennial red clovers or others used commonly as cover crops in agriculture—these clovers can quickly dominate a meadow. Annual crimson clover grows easily, and adds deep red blooms on short attractive plants, without crowding out other flowers.

        I bought several different seed varieties, all grew beautiful and hardy. My clover seed, well, thats another story. My seeds never grew. Not one red clover emerged from my yard. Very dissapointed. Sorry. Other products were fantastic though.

            Comments about American Meadows Crimson Clover Seeds:

            Stunning color. Great natural remedy for soil (nitrogen fixer). Excellent growth. Not deer-resistant.

            It's thriving in our climate.
            Planted: fall 2013 and again spring 2014.
            Hardiness Zones: 8a - 9b.
            Sun: both full sun and partial shade.
            Soil: in both loamy and clay-loam.
            Drainage: adequate.
            Soil pH: unknown.

            Have yet to see if it will reseed itself if left unmown/ungrazed, but outlook is good. No biggy if it doesn't, as it is resonably priced.

                  Comments about American Meadows Crimson Clover Seeds:

                  As a landscaper for over 14 years I used to focus on killing clover that plagued nice lawns. I recently started raising rabbits so I thought clover would be a nice treat for them. I planted this clover early spring by tilling the soil, hand spreading the seed and walking the seed in. The clover came up pretty impressively and I did have some red flowers but it wasn't as colorful as I would have liked. The rabbits didn't seem to care for it much so I let my ducks have at it. I think I will try the white clover next time.

                      Comments about American Meadows Crimson Clover Seeds:

                      I bought this a couple of years ago as a cover crop for my garden. I scattered the seed, and then the wind blew, as it usually does in Southeast Idaho. Next spring, I had crimson clover in my flower beds, but it is pretty enough to grow as a wild flower. This year I am sowing it between rows in my vegetable garden as a cover crop. It has come up well, and doesn't seem to mind being walked on.

                          I loved how well these little beauties worked out. Next year I'm going to increase the area I covered with these flowers by at least 4 or 5 fold.

                              USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                              To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                              • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                              • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
