Why did my White Clover disappear in one season?
My yard has been full of white clover and dandelions for many years, and the only changes to the very old lawn are these: 1) Much, much more rainfall and a higher water table resulting in pools on the yard. 2) Moss spreading. The clover, always abundant, is nowhere to be seen, even in areas that did not visibly flood and have no moss spreading. Strangely enough, violets are more in number than ever. This year,some (much fewer) dandelions, and zero clover. Any thoughts on this?
I did a bit of research and found that Clover actually can be susceptible to a few different viruses and it can kill off the stolen. The stolen is how the plant spreads.
Higher moisture levels that you mention vary well could of led to disease and die off of the Clover.
