White Clover

Trifolium repens

PLANT FAMILY

Fabaceae.

AROMA

Sweet.

TASTE

The blossoms taste pleasant, but the leaves are more of an acquired taste.

CHARACTERISTICS

Creeping glabrous perennial to 50cm. Leaves are 10mm to 25mm, usually with inverted white v-shaped mark, sometimes with red veins. Flowers range from white to pale pink and blossom June to September.

The Latin name means ‘crawling but not rooting’ as most of the plant crawls along and only the blossoms stand up. It is also particularly powerful and useful in fertilising the land.
