It does flower, but it isn't any good for bees. I would suspect the blossoms are so small, the bees can't use them. It is my understanding the white clover in different cultivars is more susceptible to disease's and other problems than the microclover. What I keep thinking about is the method used to produce the microclover. It was by natural selection and simply planting seed from the smallest plant, crop after crop and year after year. At the same time, they had to continue testing for it's ability to fix nitrogen and it's drought tolerance.
