Red clover is a low-growing, flowering plant commonly found in fields, meadows and other undisturbed grounds. Like many other members of the legume family, red clover contains isoflavones and coumarin compounds, the latter of which are partly responsible for the sweet taste of the flower tops that bees enjoy visiting and people enjoy in salads and teas. Together with the flowers, the somewhat bitter leaves are used in tea blends. Red clover flowers and leaves are also used to make infusions and extracts for use in skin and hair preparations.

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.
