Crimson clover (Trifolium incarnatum) is the best choice for fast-growing clover in North Carolina. It grows quickly, blooms heavily and dies with the first frost, often reseeding, according to Wildflower Information. Another very common clover, berseem clover (Trifolium alexandrinum), is not well-adapted to the area's hot weather and frosty winters, according to Montana State University.
