Running Buffalo Clover
Running buffalo clover is a perennial that grows from 4 to 20 inches tall. Like other clovers, running buffalo clover has leaves divided into 3 leaflets. It sends out long creeping runners called stolons from its base, which grow along the ground and take root. The stems and leaves are hairless.
The flower heads are about 1 inch wide, white (sometimes tinged with purple), and grow on stems that are 2 to 8 inches long. Each flower head has 2 large opposite leaves below it on the flowering stem. These leaves are typically larger than those found on stems without flowers, and the leaflets lack the two-toned patterning common on other clovers.
