This is a perennial plant, in general similar to white clover, T. repens, having pink to white flower heads somewhat resembling strawberries. It is adapted to wet, saline or alkaline soils in mild climates. It will tolerate flooding up to several weeks. It is grown to a limited extent in the wetter parts of the Pacific States, mainly for pastures on wet or saline soils.
