39. Red Clover
(Trifolium pratense L.)

39. Red Clover

A dozen or more different clovers grow in the meadows. Some are introduced and cultivated for hay. One of the best-known of our native forms is the common red clover. Its large oval leaflets are green with a light crescent-shaped band. Its small pinkish-purple flowers are grouped in conspicuous heads which are at first round, later becoming oval. It has a long flowering period - from May to September or October.
