White clover can do well in Phoenix lawns with the proper care. White clover has shallow roots, but does better in lawns than other types of clover, such as strawberry or red; it needs moisture when germinating but after that it can handle drier conditions.
White clover alone is good for low to moderate foot traffic. When mixed with grass seed, it can be used in high-traffic areas and can also tolerate drought better than when alone. You can seed the clover into an existing lawn or sow in bare spots; the clover will not need fertilizer.
