I put out some Ladino clover that I had left over and want to plant more ground cover. I want to put some native grasses also.
So will clover do ok in a open hardwood setting? Or should I try something else? I did plant some crab apples. pears and plums in the more open areas.
Any suggestions on a native grass that will handle filtered sun?
If your pH is right clover should do fine in filtered shade.
