White Clover flowers

Clover flowers are very pretty. They’re quite small, but not teeny and definitely worth a closer look.

There are different types of clover.

These particular flowers are from the White Clover plant (Trifolium repens) and measure approx 7/8 of 1 inch across at the widest part. I picked these while wandering in the rain the other day.

I thought I’d do a little research to share with these images.

White clover is a perennial legume that grows from seed or runners. It has a low tolerance to drought and a high frost tolerance.

It is widely sown throughout the world and has become naturalised in temperate and sub-tropical climates in all States of Australia where the rainfall exceeds 600 mm. An estimated six million hectares of pastures contain white clover in Australia, predominantly in the eastern States.

It is used as pasture for sheep and dairy cattle.

    1. Hi Laura.. and a good Aussie morning to you 🙂 Thanks.
      Drought is a terrible thing and I think makes it worse in the heat.
      We’re still considered ‘in drought’ over here too even though we’ve had rain this year.
      Wishing you some much needed rain!!
