I was looking for input if these clovers actually last longer than other clovers, require less maintenance, grow well on poor soils, and deer preference compared to other clovers.
This describes my Durana plot pretty well. Even though it is browsed down to the ground right now, it keeps coming back. The deer are actually walking through a plot of annuals to get to the mowed down Durana.
I also have some Imperial planted and it is doing well, but at least on my place, the Durana is the prefered clover. And... my Imperial is planted on my best soil, and the Durana is planted on an old logging deck.
Is it worth the extra cost?... JMHO, Absolutely...

Dutch is right on. If you plant in the spring, throw in some crimson or red clover to get some good grow while the Durana establishes.
I plant mine in the fall, mixed with oats. It will come on strong the following spring.

Fall planted Durana the following June.
