Red Clover is a common plant, considered a weed by many people. It spreads quickly, often crowding out other plants.
Red Clover is easily identified by its three leaftlets. Each leaflet has a pale “V” marked on it. The stems of this plant are stiff and hairy.
Red Clover can grow about 20 inches tall. Flowers are purple or pink. Flower heads are made up of many small flowers. Each flower head is between 1/2 inch and one inch wide.
Red Clover grows in fields, open forest, forest edges, paths, gardens, and lawns.
This plant can be helpful to other plants, as well as a problem, because it can put nitrogen in the soil which other plants can use.
Red Clover was introduced from Europe.
