I did a search for Durana and Yucchi clover on the forums but came up empty.  I plan to plant a 1/4 acre of clover toward to the end of Sep.  Does anyone have experience with either?  They are both white.  I have read all the threads on red and crimson so I'm going with white.  Durana was developed for the SE and dry conditions so I will probably go with it, but the local store has Yucchi in stock.

I've had good luck with the mixture from Walter T. Kelley of white and yellow sweet clover.  The yellow blooms about two weeks before the white and the white lasts about two weeks longer than the yellow.

How would clover handle wet conditions?
Also, how do you go about seeding clover on an established lawn?

Don't know.  We don't usually have wet conditions.

I just broadcast.  I'm sure drilling is better.  If you're seeing a lawn you'll probably do better with white dutch and Birdsfoot trefoil.

Crimson, BTW is worked by bees just fine.  It's Red clover that is not.

I got mine back in Oct. and planted it then.  It came up and is just setting there very tiny.  I mixed Durant, white, and one other.  It needs lime and I gave it some last week so hopefully it will speed up.  Oh, Durant is for the SE, hot, dry conditions used for cattle and deer plots.

Which gives higher yields?
The nice thing about white dutch is that it won't get as tall, meaning, no mowing.

Or if you do mow it still blooms well.
