Arrowleaf clover is a winter annual legume that matures late with high forage yield and quality.  It has a high percentage of hard seed, good reseeding ability, and low incidence of bloat. Primary growing areas are in the southeastern part of the US, from eastern Texas and Oklahoma to South Carolina and southward to the Gulf of Mexico.  Arrowleaf clover will thrive on well-drained sandy and clay soils but is less tolerant of acidity and low fertility than other clovers. It does not tolerate alkaline soils or poor drainage.
