Frosty Berseem Annual White Clover

Berseem clover is a summer/winter annual legume known for its ability to tolerate waterlogged soils and soil salinity, while providing higher protein levels than many other legumes. Most berseems winter kill in northern climates (hardy to USDA Zone 8 - about 15 - 20° F), however Frosty Berseem Clover brings improved winter-tolerance. 


  • Produces very large amount of biomass; good weed suppression.
  • Highly nutritious (18 - 28% protein)
  • Non-bloating legume
  • More saline tolerant than alfalfa or red clover (pH 4.8 - 7.8)
  • Tolerates waterlogged soil
  • Initial growth is slow, but than grows fast; expect forage to be ready in about 8 weeks.
