Default Clover Blend: KoPu2 and Endura?

Seed dealer recommending this blend for reseeding some small clover plots burned out by last July's severe drought / heat wave. Had previously used Biologic blends.

Anyone used KoPu2 and/or Endura, perhaps together? What was your experience overall? Are they drought hardy?

NOTE: I will be planting in a few weeks, with some chicory mixed in to keep the fields useful if another drought hits mid-summer. Soil is sandy but region is fairly cool (northern lower penn. of Michigan).

Thanks!

Default Kopu 2

We use Kopu 2 in our Outfitters Choice Spring Blend and I can tell you I have never seen a clover perform better than Kopu 2. I have seen it so dry that it would crunch under your feet only to bounce back as soon as it gets water on it. It is also very aggresive and spreads like wild fire. You can't go wrong with Kopu 2!

Default Kopu II

I love this stuff. I planted some up in the western U.P. three years ago and it was still going strong last fall. I have a plot of it behind my house here in southeast michigan and it never appeared stressed due to lack of rainfall last summer at all. It really bounces back fast from a cutting and I cut it four times last summer. Seems to be more vigourous and taller than Durana. I am thinking of using it with Alice when I replant my plots next year.

What about Endura (aka Kura)? That will be a significant portion of the blend.

Anyone with experience with Endura in northern climates out there?

From what I read it is slow to establish but stunningly long lived. Wondering how well it and KoPuII will do planted together (with chicory too).

Given the amazing warmth I may well plant that mix this weekend.
