Red clover is a common low-growing plant typically found in pastures, meadows and other open but undisturbed places. Bees feed on the nectar, while many animals nibble on the flowers and leaf.
Collectively, the aerial parts of the plant are dried and used in teas, although red clover may also be tinctured. In herbalism it is combined with burdock, slippery elm and turkey rhubarb, red clover is an ingredient in the classic Essiac herbal tea formula.
