I already have quite a bit in my yard, but now that I think about it, I'd like to use this in my main garden as a nitrogen-fixing ground cover. I'm having a difficult time locating small quantities of seed for sowing, and most suppliers seem to do bulk 5-50+ lbs. I don't need that much. If you could offer a small packet or bag of a few hundred seeds, would appreciate it much and I can give you a few dollars for it. Does well in my desert area, much better than white clover. Please let me know if you have some available. I'm in the western US.
Edit: Found what I needed. Thank you to all who read this.
Did take a look at them in my searches, but didn't find subterranean clover there in their list. I am a fan of Johnny's, have bought several interesting veggies and greens from them. Sweet clover, however, would be a fine plant, although a little tall and takes up a little too much room in the garden. I want most of the advantages of white clover, but with more hardiness and drought resistance. I have subclovers in my yard as well as a few small patches of white clover. They outperform the white clover here with ease.
Finally, tonight I found a source for about a pound of subterranean clover and not a bad price. Please consider my request fulfilled and not active anymore.

Is it drought tolerant as well? That's been one of the major issues in my area. 14 inches of rain or less here, usually much, much less.

Yeah, it's hot as hell here in Georgia and it holds up well. The rain we get is kept on the ground much longer with all the green leave cover it creates. You may wanna do a mix of clover. White dutch is more low-lying. Crimson has some height. Red clover is also low-lying.
