Wild Flowers of Sleepy Hollow Lake
- Alsike Clover (Trifolium hybridium) -

(Alsike Clover - 01)  The flowers of the alsike clover can vary from nearly white to a deeper pink color.  The alsike clover leaves are typical palmate with three oval leaflets; however, the alsike clover leaves have no chevron marks.

 

 

 

(Alsike Clover - 01a)  In this enlarged photo of the alsike clover leaf, we can see the veining in each leaflet and the finely toothed edges.

 

 

 

 

 

(Alsike Clover - 02)  The pink color of the alsike clover flowers can be seen more clearly in this photo.  Each one of these 1 cm. long tubular shaped growths is a separate flower, many of which are clustered together in a rounded head (the top of this blooming flower head has been damaged, which allows us to see the flower structure more clearly).

 

 

 

(Alsike Clover - 03)  This is an enlarged photo of an undamaged 3/4 inch diameter blooming head of the alsike clover.

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Alsike Clover - 04)  In this photo we can get a closer look at some of the individual flowers that make up the bloom of the alsike clover.  Alsike clover blooms from May through September.

 

 

 

 

(Alsike Clover - 05)  We found this alsike clover's flowering head to be quite interesting, because the top flowers are white and the lower flowers are pink.

 

 

 

 

(Alsike Clover - 06)  In this bee's eye view of the blooming head of the alsike clover, we get a closer look at some of the individual flowers.

 

 

 

 

(Alsike Clover - 07)  This photo may not be as beautiful as most of our photos, but it is quite interesting because it shows the various stages of the alsike clover flowering process from new buds to dying flowers.  In accordance with God's creation process, even the dying flowers are developing new life in their seeds, which will bring forth new alsike clover plants.  In this process the alsike clover brings life to other plants by enriching the soil with nitrogen, as do the other members of the pea family (Leguminosae).
