Sweet-clover is not a native prairie wildflower, but it has adapted well to ditches and other rough ground. And yes, this clover has a soft, sweet scent — no surprise that it's a source of nectar for honey.
Because of its abundance, I associate it with Grasslands National Park and the area around Val Marie. I wonder, Will it be so lush when I return?
