Family, Pulse. The common white clover is too well known to need much description. It has the papilionaceous corolla (see p. 8), a 5-cleft calyx, with bristly teeth, much shorter than the corolla. The corolla turns brown, remaining after the flower has withered. Stems slender, creeping. Leaflets notched or heart-shaped. The stipules which are often prominent in this Family are small, like scales.
Found everywhere in fields throughout the summer. It is sweet-scented. Honey made from white clover is delicious.
