Sulphur Clover Trifolium ochroleucon

Sulphur clover is a pioneer species that was able to colonise East Anglia during the harsh climatic conditions after the last ice-age.  It is a significant plant for conservation as its presence indicates good quality habitat that may warrant conservation management.  A remnant of former meadows, its habitat is declining.

Conservation status

Sulphur clover is a nationally scarce plant that grows in meadows, roadside verges, grasslands, woodland margins.  These habitats are threatened by the conversion of old meadows to arable farming.  Poor management, such as lack of grass cutting, encroachment of scrub, eutrophication from run-off and road side development schemes have also contributed to declines.  It is mostly found in East Anglia, predominantly in Norfolk and Suffolk.
