(2-3′ tall, first year. 6-8′ tall, second year) Yellow Blossom Sweet Clover is one of the best honeybee nectar sources as well as an excellent cover crop. Plants send roots up to 5′ deep making it extremely drought tolerant once established. Seedings done in mid-spring will start blooming in two months. The plants produce many flower spikes with sunshine yellow flowers. When grown as a cover crop it breaks up compacted soils, brings nutrients up from deep in the sub-soil and fixes nitrogen for future crops. The plants are tolerant of hot and cold weather. Sweet clover plants contains coumarin (an anticoagulant) and should not be planted in areas where livestock graze without expert advice.
