Is there a clover that does not bloom? I want to plant it to grow as a lawn, and I know the blooms are good for honeybees, but I’d rather have solid green.

I don't know of any clover that doesn't bloom. Sorry, I'm no help. Shrug!

An alternative might be Smooth Rupturewort (Herniaria glabra) which is a low groundcover that spreads quite rapidly. It does get tiny little flowers but I think they might be green, I barely notice them. It is evergreen, only gets about 2" tall, and tolerates light foot traffic. I've used it in the expansion joints of my sidewalk and at the foot of a maple, but have not routinely walked on it, so can't really speak to that.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
