I like to grow the crimson clover here in SE Oklahoma it is used often as a cover crop along the highways and other steep banks and I presume that it must be planted by some Goverment agentcy or other..But whoever plants it is very beautiful when in bloom (May). I plant it in my yard to have something green in an otherwise brown Bermuda grass lawn..It is about the cheapest of all the clover seed I have found .I get mine at the local Farmer's co-op in Poteau Ok

First, allow me to offer my most sincere apologies for the delay in replying to comments on this article. We have completed our move. It took a while but I am settled in.

Uncle Joe, that is a BEAUTIFUL picture. How wonderful to have 50 pounds of crimson Clover seed. I don't have a garden in Colorado yet but I hope to soon. I wonder if I can grow a little bit in pots?

Thank you so kindly for sharing the photo.

Blessings to everyone!
