Often found in parks, banks and lawns – any type of grassland habitat – White Clover is the commonest of the clovers.
The White Clover flowerheads are ball-shaped cluster on a long stem, made up of tiny individual white and sometimes very pale pink flowers. The leaves have the archetypal ‘cloverleaf’ shape: three rounded leaflets often with a pale band.
Common across the UK.
Almost any grassy habitat.
Flowers from June to September.

Our road verges have the potential to act as a sanctuary for wildflowers and a network of connective corridors across the UK.
By unlocking their potential, road verges and greenspaces have an important part to play in natures recovery, whilst enhancing carbon storage, saving public money, and producing resources from waste products.
