Hares Foot Clover

Hare's Foot Clover is a very distinctive plant which tends to grow mainly in coastal locations in Wales - usually along cliff paths and in dry grassy areas. It can easily be recognised by its dense inflorescence of white flowers with a pinkish tinge, giving a fluffy appearance said to resemble a rabbit's foot. Its leaves are trifoliate, but very narrow. The flowering period is from June to September.
