A subset of plants propagated by a citizen volunteer from a site owned by a private landowner in Tennessee were given to a local botanic garden (Cheekwood Botanic Gardens) to create an interpretive rare plant display.
With encouragement from the Tennessee Division of Natural Areas, a citizen volunteer initiated contact with a private landowner, secured permission to propagate plants from the site, and established 18 different reintroduction sites in nearby parks and state natural areas.
As of July 2022, Southeastern Grasslands Initiative had collected 3 accessions of Trifolium calcaricum from populations in Tennessee.
As of July 2022, Southeastern Grasslands Initiative holds 1,238 seeds from 1 accession (wild provenance only).
At least in Tennessee, the habitat for Trifolium calcaricum lies within an area of rapid growth and development.
