Habitat - Fields, pastures, waste ground, disturbed sites, roadsides, railroads.

Origin - Native to Eurasia.

Other info. - Yet another introduced member of the genus Trifolium . This plant is scattered throughout Missouri and grows in much of the U.S. and Canada. It was introduced as fodder and has subsequently spread. Our plants belong to var. pratense Rabenh. (synonymous with var. elegans (Savi) Asch. & Graebn. ). Another variety, var. hybridum is larger and more commonly cultivated (mostly northward), but does not appear in our state, yet.
The plant is high in protein but can cause skin irritation in some people.
