White Clover - Trifolium repens

Part of the bean family, White Clover is native to Europe (including the British Isles) and was introduced into the United States as a source of forage and hay. Habitats include pastures, fields, grassy meadows, lawns, parks, mowed areas along roadsides and waste areas. This plant prefers disturbed areas that are grassy and subject to occasional mowing.

The genus name, Trifolium, derives from the Latin tres, "three", and folium, "leaf."

Other names include: Dutch clover, Ladino clover, or Ladino.

Four-Leafed Clover
by Scottish author, Elizabeth Gordon

Laughing, lucky Four-Leafed clover

Is a most atrocious rover;

Doesn't stay long in one place

Goes and never leaves a trace.
