    What is the reason for the hubam?

    vs yellow sweet, white dutch or crimson

    Just curious, because I've never seen much about his variety.

    Thanks.

    Hubam and ball clover are annuals. If planted in the fall (maybe early spring), you should get a bloom that year. Most other clovers, like the crimson, are bi-annuals. They grow the first year, bloom the second, then die.

    This is my first year growing crimson clover, but I am pretty sure it is a bi annual.

    If you plant crimson clover in the fall it will bloom in the early part of next summer. Do you know what they are charging for the hubam?

    Thanks for the clarification,

    Turner Seeds charged $3.00 a pound for the hubam.

    Hey Jon,

    Bah, wish I knew there was an annual clover that bloomed. I would have bought a bunch.

    Any info on how much nectar is produced?

    Any other annual clovers worth looking at?

    I'm not sure what crimson clover planted in late winter will do. There's a chance it will bloom. My only experience with crimson clover was a cover crop planted in the fall. It's beautiful when it blooms, you can look up a picture on google. The bees are attracted to it, and it makes good honey. One downfall is that the bloom period isn't that long, and if it is rainy weather the bees may not be able to work it to its full potential

    Thanks Jon,

    I was not expecting any blooms this year. The possibility of some is a bonus.
