Red Clover: A Great Herb For Rover

The red clover is easily identified by its reddish-pink globe-like flower, hairy stems, and unique “V” mark coloring on the three-lobed leaves. It is also very easy to grow and offers the soil much-needed amendments, which is great for breaking up heavy, rich clay soils.

Red clover is also known as Trifolium pratense. I love the fact that you can pick fresh flowers and add them to any meal for a nutritional boost.
