I've planted a mix of several clovers in my food plots. in the summer they grow tall ( 6-9 ") look great, and the deer are in there nightly. But in the fall/winter, while they are still greeen, they are now small (1-2"). Are there any variety of Clovers that keep their size and provide food in the winter??

Thanks for any info.

They are dormant in the winter so don't expect much growth this far north once it has been grazed. Soil temps need to come up for any new growth. All of mine down here are about 6- 8" tall and the deer are doing a good job of keeping it there. Once it gets cold tho it's done till spring.

Look at other plant varieties to take up the slack... Oats, wheat, rye, brassicas, winter peas can all provide later into the winter food sources...
