Melilotus officinalis is biennial cool-season legume named for its characteristic sweet odor that is intensified upon drying. Long, penetrating taproots allow this clover to withstand dry soils and adapt to a range of conditions. It’s considered to be invasive in certain regions due to its hardiness, drought resistance, and abundant seed production in a short period of time. Subsequently because of this, it’s excellent for grazing, attracting pollinators, and is capable of fixing up to 140 lbs of Nitrogen/acre. Very nutritional in the vegetative growth phase. Does well on neutral or alkaline loams. Typically grows to be 36” tall.
