    When I was I kid in south carolina there was always tons of three leaf clover and nobody ever took any care of it. I think it's like grass. Just keep it watered and give it sun and it should be happy. Just wondering, why do you want to pot it? I know it smells good but you can just go to the park and smell it.

    Some sort of three leaf clover grows outside my house as a weed...it is more interesting than lawn grass, IMO.

    PFT once sold the so-called true clover sp. labelled Trifolium repens. It looks a lot like the ones growing outside my house except the leaves are variegated. I have not seen the flowers so a better comparison isn't yet possible. The ones growing outside bloom constantly and yes, the flowers do smell nice.

    Info on T. repens.

    Using the above site you'll see that this plant is an invasive weed found in every U.S. state. The plant pictured is also variegated similarly to the PFT plants. Why are the ones growing outside here not variegated?...could be anything.
