Steve And Muffin’s Wildflowers #60.

Hi everyone! Today’s wildflower is the “Rabbit-foot Clover”, also know as “Hare’s-foot Clover”. This is not a native wildflower for us, but comes from Europe and Asia. It prefers sunny locations but will also grow in partial shade. It also prefers dry sandy soil where not much else will grow, so they are not really a threat to our native wildflowers. They also don’t appear to spread very quickly. There was actually less this year than the last 2 years at the one location I keep track of across the street where the path to the river begins. They are members of the pea family and the flowers are very tiny and hidden beneath that feathery outer layer. The flowers are white to pale pink and they bloom from June to September, though they have already finished for this year here. The plant grows from 4 to 16 inches (10 to 40cm) tall. In Canada they can be found in B.C., and from Ontario to the east coast. In the US they can be found from MN to TX and across to the east coast, plus going west from MN to Washington and south to California. I hope you have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
