The genus Trifolium consisting of about 300 species of plants in the leguminose pea family Fabaceae.
The clover plant has the ability to convert nitrogen into fertilizer using bacteria in its root system, practically eliminating the need for additional fertilization.
Sacred plant of the spring equinox: the drudges associate the tripartite form of its leaves to “Triskell”, the sacred wheel, emblem of the triple manifestation of spring; they used as a talisman against evil spirits. His three leaves represent the divine Triads, the Mystic Three and the threefold aspect of life as body, soul and spirit. Pliny the Elder tells in his writing that clover is a sacred and magical plant because “no snake touches her”, hence the belief that the plant could cure the bite.
