Commonly called white clover, Trifolium repens are usually found in clover patches. This white flowered weed grows anywhere from 6 to 12” tall. The stem is long and skinny, with a white flower head on the top. Each flower will have approximately 20 – 50 pedals. The pedals will turn brown where they are dying off. White clovers can live wherever there is soil presents; lawns, meadows, and along roadside to name a few. Butterflies, flies, and all different kinds of bees will tend to visit the weed to pollinate. Caterpillars love to feast on white clovers. Like many weeds, white clovers take up space where grass should grow.
