Trifolium repens is a herbaceous perennial plant and one of the most widely cultivated types of clover. It has been widely introduced worldwide as a forage crop, and is now also common in most grassy areas (lawns and gardens) of North America, Australia and New Zealand.
It does best in well-drained soil, is extremely fast and easy to grow, spreading each year. White Clover can be planted between row plantings or as a solid cover.
White Clover does not grow well in highly alkaline soils. It has shallow roots, meaning that it will not tolerate much drought. It will tolerate sandy soil if given plenty of water. White Clovers in general can handle more foot traffic than other clovers and will also tolerate more heat.
