Introduced winter annual and herbaceous legume. The leaves and stems of crimson clover resemble those of red clover, but the leaves are round-tipped with more hair on the stems and leaves. Seedlings grow rapidly from the crown forming a rosette. This rosette enlarges as weather becomes favorable.


It can be utilized in pasture, hay, organic farming, pollinator enhancement, silage mixes, or used as a winter cover for soil protection or green manure crop for soil improvement.

Restoration: Crimson clover will grow on soils of poorer quality than most other clovers, thriving on both well-drained sandy and clayey soils. It does not do well in extreme cold or heat. The preferable pH range is 6.0 to 7.0.  

Livestock: On pasture or hay high in clover content, take steps to introduce animals gradually to the forage or the risk of bloat can be high.

Cover Crop: Crimson clover has been used for a cover crop as far north as northern Maine. The primary growing areas are the Southeast and southern Atlantic coastal states.
