Mammoth Red Clover

$ 2.00

Mammoth Red is the best clover for deficient soils.
Mammoth red is tall, growing at 2-3'.  It is quick-growing clover. Plant in the spring, summer or fall, alone or with grain/grass. Mammoth red will grow in more acid soil (pH 5.0-6.0) than other clovers if lime is applied at seeding time. This is a popular biennial used for Nitrogen addition and hay crops. The plant is large with big leaves, making it an ideal grazing crop. Red clover may be the best choice for frost seeding; it is extremely cold hardy and does well in most soils and growing conditions. It does, like most clovers, perform poorly in hot weather unless seeded into a crop canopy. The long tap roots loosen soils and mine phosphorus and other nutrients from deep in the soil. The flowers are edible and may be used to garnish drinks, salads, soups, and desserts; the flavor is sweet and mild.
