Jumbo White Clover (unknown name)


All pics 5/15/09 and 5/15/04 ... just goes to show you the earth clock keeps pretty good time.

If you can't tell from the pictures, these clover are about three to five times the size of the traditional white "lawn" clover. And unlike the lawn variety, they don't taste very good -- Far to brittle and stickery. (Not like I tried it or anything.) On the other hand, they furnish a great way to see what a clover really is... a collection of Pea-flower blooms in the round.

As is, all of these clover were on a sloping highway cutaway, and may have been placed there to protect from soil erosion. I have yet to find the name of this plant, so if anyone can help, jump in.
