    It was just a "sport" found growing in a field of normal crimson that they starting breeding. Kinda how Rhode Island White chickens got started. Normal red ones, for some reason, had white ones that they bred to each other to form the new breed. I dunno.

    Yes, and we do treat, but due to other issues, the keeper was unable to get over to the farm for about 6 months and that was that.

    In my case, I planted it for my bees. I've heard that bees can't see red but they are all over my crimson clover. I reasoned that they would prefer the white strain of crimson clover over the red since they see white. I found this not to be true. It appears that they are attracted to both varieties with a little lean towards the red. All three varieties of crimson clover that I have planted are in full bloom right now. A. U. Robin started first followed by White Cloud. Dixie Reseeding started last. The deer like all three varieties.

    Here is a picture of a white crimson plant that came up as a "sport" in my garden at home that I planted in Dixie Re-seeding. It is the only one in about an acre's worth. I could probably get it's seed and make more.
