Artist's Description

White Clover – Trifolium repens

The Trifolium repens is a herbaceous perennial plant. It is low growing, with heads of whitish flowers, often with a tinge of pink or cream. The heads are generally 1.5-2 cm wide, and are at the end of 7 cm peduncles or flower stalks. The leaves are trifoliolate, smooth, elliptic to egg-shaped and long-petioled. The stems function as stolons, so white clover often forms mats with the stems creeping as much as 18 cm a year, and rooting at the nodes. (Ref: Wikipedia)

Often considered an undesirable weed, clover is a useful ground cover and serves as good grazing food for livestock. It can be a nutritious addition to diet for humans too, especially when dried and ground for mixing with flour.

This particular bloom is unusual in that it is nearly 4 cm tall and 2.5 cm wide and it has the chevron markings of its cousin, The Red Clover, on its leaves.
