Microclover® produces an environmentally friendly lawn alternative. Very little fertilizer, fungicides and water are required for Microclover to flourish. It would be difficult to find a more environmentally friendly, cost effective and low maintenance turf solution.
Not to be confused with miniclover, Microclover®, Trifolium repens var Pipolina ssp Microclover, is adapted to a wide range of climatic and soil conditions; it is already growing successfully all around the world. Microclover® tolerates wet, shade and drought conditions, however it can only tolerate wet conditions as long as the area is not flooded for long periods.
Turf grass mixes containing Microclover® (such as PT 769 Rough & Ready or PT 767 Dog Park) are superior to traditional turf, while remaining somewhat traditional in appearance. The clover permanently fertilizes the grass, thus increasing its wear tolerance. In addition it weaves its stolons with the grass, spreading evenly and integrating its leaves homogeneously into the lawn.
This perennial clover remains greener much longer than grasses in both drought and cold conditions. Lawns containing Microclover® are a brighter green earlier and later in the year. It has a good summer color, as it is particularly resistant to drought because of its deep rooting system.
In order to achieve the look of a lawn, Microclover® requires regular mowing.
Pro Time Microclover is coated with a natural inoculant that ensures nitrogen fixation.
Germination: 10 to 14 days under ideal conditions
