Its getting to be that time again. I just ordered 8 pounds of durana clover to seed into the sod in my backyard and my neighbors back yard. The two "plots" combined is about an acre. My hope is to have conditions right for some frost seeding, but we shall see. I already have a good recruitment of oats, asliske, crimson, and sweet clover that I planted in September that should come in strong this spring. Any thoughts/advice to share about Durana. It seems to be growing in popularity for a good white clover. Expensive though.

I have planted Patriot clover, kissin' cousin of Durana. From what I understand, Durana is slow to establish, so, you should put it in a mix of clovers. It may not frost seed well into sod.

Durana is very hardy, once established and is supposed to last far longer than other ladino type clovers.

Will work on lower pH soils, drier locations, and with less fertilizer.

My Patriot has done pretty well and is 4 years old now.

I may be doing a "renovation" of it this spring where I hit it with a 1/2 qt of Roundup per acre to kill out invading grasses and weeds.
