Sorry, couldn't resist another set that just appeared in my life this week.
These are just common (and alien in the US) clovers. The white clover, Trifolium repens, is smaller, with the flower about 3/4 inch wide, sometimes tinged with pink.
The red clover, Trifolium pratense, is larger. The fuzzy blooms are rounder, and may be over an inch across. The leaves are large, with those odd white chevrons on them.
"Trifolium" is an easy genus to remember because clovers have three (tri) leaves (folium). There are lots of clovers!
