If tarnished plant bug is in your mix of potential pests, I do not recommend
clover or any dicot as a ground cover around orchards.  TPB can make a home
of such plants and jump  onto the trees every time you mow and start feeding
on peaches and other fruit.  Seems that if the groundcover is allowed to go
unmowed it's not such a problem, but dicots take up a lot of water (which
this year is a good thing, so far).  Spare the mowing and they take a lot
more.
