||Low, spreading plant, 1-2 feet tall.
Flowers in dense clover heads, red to purple. Leaves with
3 leaflets, each blunt-pointed, oval, and usually bearing a
Alien weed of waste places, pastures, fields,
and roadsides. In Wildwood, moderately common along
Wildwood Drive and, especially, the bikeway in the open, meadow
area at the south of the Park.
The clover head and 3-part leaves is distinctive of the genus Trifolium. Most clovers in the Park are yellow, white or gray. Crimson clover (T. incarnatum) has longer heads and the flowers are deep crimson-red. The
white V on the leaves helps confirm the identification of red clover.
