Neutral dmj1218 On May 9, 2006, dmj1218 from west Houston, TX (Zone 9a) wrote:

White Prairie Clover ranges from Canada to Mexico. A legume that captures nitrogen from the air and stores it in nodules on the roots. Plant with other legumes and short grasses on thin soils or highly erodible land to begin a healing process and rebuild fertility. Prefers full sun and clay or caliche soil that is well-drained. Blooms June-July at a height of 2' to 3'.
