Orchards are extremely valuable habitat components when managing properties for attraction, aesthetics, diversity and sustainability. For 25 years, we’ve witnessed the pride and joy landowners get from planting and maintaining orchards. Every steward of natural resources wants to pass the land on in better condition than when they received it. The understory of an orchard represents a blank canvas to not only provide attractive, low growing plants for wildlife, pollinators and beneficial insects but also to provide aesthetics that make a property a showcase. We started this long-lasting clover/legume mix with just the right amount of showy, annual and perennial flowers that won’t grow any taller than 16 inches. In fact, you can find 19 different low growing flowers in this mixture including Dwarf Plains Coreopsis, Forget-Me-Not, Iceland Poppy, Johnny Jump-Up, Moss Verbena, Tussock Bellflower, Sweet Alyssum, Spurred Snapdragon, Siberian Wallflower, Catchfly, Dwarf Cornflower, California Bluebell, African Daisy and others. In addition, six different low growing and long lasting clover selections and alfalfa round off the blend. Among them, Aberlasting Kura Clover, a cross between White Ladino and Kura Caucasian clover is one of the longest lasting clovers and is a great selection for an understory orchard application. Aberlasting Kura Clover combines the best qualities of ladino clover with deeper roots, higher yield, and better drought tolerance of Caucasian (Kura) clover. Planting rate 15 lbs. per acre

All clovers in the Orchard Blend are pre-inoculated
