Microclover grows short and even in a mixture with grass.
The ultimate small leaved white clover for turf
New microclovers have achieved the smallest leaf size ever seen in commercial White Clovers. These small leaves give the desired impression of a “grass lawn” rather than a Clover lawn. Click here to view the latest new mixture: MicroClover Sport
Ordinary large leaved White Clover often appears in older lawns. They tend to be patchy and give a very uneven look to the lawn. This is the reason why white clover has been seen as a weed until recently. New microclovers grow short and spread evenly in the lawn with turf grasses, thus giving a perfect “grassy” look to the lawn.
Microclover has proven to be more drought tolerant compared to grass only turf. Lawns with microclover stay green during dry Summers. At the same time savings on Nitrogen can be made as the microclover supplies Nitrogen to the lawn. This has the effect of the grass staying green and healthy due to an optimal supply of Nitrogen available throughout the growing period. The greening effect of microclover is very high.
The growth of microclover and grasses together is ideal - weed is not given a chance to spread!

" This research has demonstrated improved winter colour and appearance for microclover mixtures in comparison with standard lawn mixtures."
Fine leaved and dense types of perennial ryegrass. Microclover grows quite aggressively and suits these newest high quality perennial ryegrasses very well.
