Abstract

Trifolium ambiguum, more commonly known as Pellett clover, Honey clover, or Kura clover, is a legume possessing some highly desirable agronomic qualities (Figure 1). Most important of these qualities is its exceptional ability to spread extensively by rhizomes, an attribute significant in establishing a perennial forage legume. Secondly, it is highly attractive to the bees because of its high nectar content. Also, it is winter hardy and resistant to some serious clover diseases (9). Experiment station and soil conservation specialists have indicated a real interest in the species. Its extensive "root" system makes it valuable for soil conservation purposes.
