It germinates very quickly, often in three days, and can be used as a cover crop to fix nitrogen and to replace unwanted weeds. Red clover is the primary ingredient in the famous Hoxsey tonic which we provide under the name of Sundance since Dr. Christopher said that his Dogwood formula was the same as that of Chief Sundance (and we determined it is the same as that of Hoxsey.) Red clover blossoms are also made into herbal teas and ointments.
