Origin:

Native to Europe, but now widespread in the United States along the Pacific and Atlantic coast states.

Biology:

Perennial clover propagating by seeds and stolons. Mature plants tend to form wide clumps with erect stems.

Identification:

Mature plants may grow to over 2 feet tall, and this habit as well as the thick clumping will distinguish this weed from white clover, which is prostrate and more sparse in its growth. Stems may be prostrate and root at the nodes. Leaves are oval and rounded at their apex, and are divided into 3 leaflets on a long petiole or stem. The middle or terminal leaflet has no stalk. Flowers are in a compact flower head of numerous flowers, which are white to pink.

Characteristicts Important to Control:

A perennial, clumping weed.
