Is this a weed out flower?
Looks like red clover. http://plants.usda.gov/core/profile?symbol=TRPR2
Some people consider that a weed, some consider it a flower. It can be a bit invasive but not as bad as some. It came as part of my bird and butterfly mixture and the bees like it.
For my father’s sheep that was their primary diet in the winter time. He grew 16 acres of Red Clover hay every year. Herbalists use the plant for something nowadays.
