|Latin Name:||Trifolium pratense|
|Common Name:||Red Clover|
|Plant Part(s):||Aerial Portion|
Trifolium pratense is a member of the pea family with alternate, three lobed leaves and dark pink, densely packed flowers. Native to Europe, western Asia, and northwest Africa, red clover flower is now naturalized worldwide and is often found in meadow spaces. Red cover blossoms make a lovely, nourishing addition to herbal tea blends and extracts.
The flower heads are collected in full bloom, during the summer months. Druids believed that it could ward off evil spells and witches, while Medieval Christians believed that the three lobed leaves were associated with the trinity and the four lobed leaves as a symbol of the cross. Red clover belongs to the pea family.
