Attracts pollinators and other beneficial insects. A green manure crop that does not re-seed in the garden. (Trifolium alexandrinum)

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).

Plant Information
16-20” tall and wide. Berseem clover is widely adaptable to all but sandy soils and is tolerant of soil salinity. A heavy nitrogen producer, especially on infertile soils. Berseem is a warm-season crop sown in the spring in northern states where it grows as a summer annual. In the south, sow seeds late summer or early fall for a winter annual cover. Can also be sown in August for late-summer cover in both regions. Berseem is the least winter-hardy of the clovers, making it an easy cover crop to winter kill. Mow plants when they reach 14 inches. Plants may re-sprout from the crown to produce additional biomass. Plow cuttings into soil for green manure or allow to decompose on the soil surface.
