Red clover or meadow (Trifolium pratense)
Red clover or meadow (Trifolium pratense) in the first year is poorly developed. Taproot stout, branched, growing faster than the surface part. Sown seeds germinate in 4-5 days, but in the early days of his life plants require low temperatures, and therefore preferable to early spring sowing. Plants resistant to frost. Sod and soil compaction suffer badly.
There are two main types: early maturing and late-South-Russian, which is widespread in central and northern areas. Clover late-zimostoek more, in the south is suffering from the heat and lack of moisture. Have less capacity for regrowth than early maturing.
