Ball Clover Seed - Ball Clover is a cool season clover that is sometimes mistaken for white clover, but the blooms are smaller and more rounded. Although Ball Clover can be quite productive, ball clover has a shorter growing season and often yields less than other commonly grown annual clovers.  Ball Clover is a prolific seed producer even under high stocking rates, and a high percentage of the seed are hard seed. Thus, Ball Clover is an excellent reseeding clover. The primary period of growth is early to mid-spring. Ball clover is best suited to heavy soils, but is surprisingly well adapted to fairly dry sites as well.
