    I know which is the MRC, the plants with the long narrow leaves and the pinkish flowers. But there’s another clover there, very small leaves and small white flowers, but a typical three leaf cluster. It’s growing tall and looks like nothing is eating it. I didn’t plant it unless it was in the MRC. 1408B49E-9745-42AC-AF39-833300FA0759.jpeg

    One of these:

    On the first look I thought White Dutch but it could be ladino. If you or someone earlier didn't plant it then I'd guess White Dutch. Clover seed is a hard seed and will lay dormant in the ground for a long time until something cracks the seed which allows moisture to penetrate and start germination.

    The only other clover that I’ve planted in this plot besides MRC was WINA clover years ago. Before that it was just woods. It’s a mystery to me.

    I have noticed similar appearing clover in clay bottoms of kickapoo creek in van zandt county

    Appears similar to Louisiana S-1

    I didn't plant it, but pretty widespread this year

    I think lots of things are different this year. For instance, I keep the state highway right of way mowed in front of my property. I usually have a mixture of common bermuda, behia grass, a few weeds and a little crimson clover. I spray the behia and keep it in check, and don’t mow until the crimson clover goes to seed. This year I have more weeds and more variety of weeds than ever. I also have more clover than ever. Another thing I can’t explain.
