Trifolium arvense

Trifolium arvense (NL: Hazenpootje / EN: Haresfoot clover, Rabbitfoot clover, Stone clover, Oldfield clover / DE: Hasen-Klee / FR: Trèfle Pied-de-lièvre, Trèfle des champs) is a species of clover native to most of Europe, excluding the arctic zone, and western Asia, in plain or mid-mountain habitats up to 1600 m altitude. It grows in dry sandy soils, both acidic and alkaline, typically found at the edge of fields, in wastelands, at the side of roads, on sand dunes, and opportunistically in vineyards and orchards when they are not irrigated. Like most legumes, it fixes nitrogen, making it valued on low fertility soils for the benefit it gives to other crop species in supplying nitrogen. It is also grazed by sheep and goats.
