Clover is a broadleaf, perennial weed found in lawns and garden beds. Leaves are usually divided into three leaflets atop stems that can reach 2 to 4 inches high.
Clover bears white or pink flowers from late spring into fall, which often attract bees. The seeds can live in the soil for 20-plus years before sprouting. As it spreads, Clover can suffocate lawn grasses.
Clover is found throughout the United States.
