Red Clover is used for cover crops in fields. It helps the soil. It keeps those pesky weeds from going all over the place. It is also pretty.  you can use it for gardens where you will plant vegetables as well.

Red Clover is planted in the autumn, about a month before frost. It is plowed under the ground about a month before planting.

Usually, the fields that have Red Clover are in areas that aren’t too cold in the winter, like the southern United States.

Here are some pictures of clover that is nice to look at. There are about 300 kinds of clover, but I found pictures of a small number of them.
