Also known as White Clover, this weed has leaves with three leaflets, and creeping stems that set roots at whatever point they touch the ground. Flowers are white or pink. Clover, with white flowers, is a member of the pea family. This means clovers can fix nitrogen from the air and therefore they favour poorly fertilised lawns.
