Red clover has naturalized so successfully that we see it as belonging to our region despite being native to Europe, Asia, and Africa. It has the incredible ability to fixate nitrogen, which builds healthy soils and creates protein-rich food for wildlife. Red clover is also an important food source for pollinators, especially bumblebees. It is edible, medicinal, and Vermont’s state flower.
