Types: Cultivars of white clover are grouped by plant height and leaf size.
White Dutch is short growing but has the greatest persistence and winter hardiness.
New Zealand is intermediate in height, flowers profusely and has some heat tolerance.
Ladino fixes the most nitrogen, is taller and higher yielding, but less persistent than White Dutch.
