Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)

Comments:  Blooms from May to September in fields, lawns, and waste places. "Introduced from Europe and extensively planted here as a hay and pasture crop, this species is one of our most common perennial clovers. It stores nitrogen in its root nodules and is used in crop rotation to improve soil fertility" (NAS Field Guide to Wildflowers). Photograph taken in Anne Arundel Co., Maryland (5/8/2004).
