Botanical Name: Trifolium pratense
Red clover can be a common sight around meadows, parks, and fields during late spring. A low growing, short-lived perennial in the pea family, Trifolium pratense has three lobed leaves and dark pink, densely packed flower heads. Red clover herb is a blend of the aerial portions of the plant, perfect for tincturing and brewing a cup of red clover tea.
Druids believed that it could ward off evil spells and witches, while Medieval Christians believed that the three lobbed leaves were associated with the trinity and the four lobbed leaves as a symbol of the cross. Red clover belongs to the pea family.
