Giant clover?

This plant20160911_100827.jpg20160911_100719.jpg This plant has been in my garden for a few months. Identification would be very welcome. It may be something obvious that I can't ID. The coin and Mint leaves are a guide as to size. Thank you.

    Hello R Roberts,

     

    Welcome to NaturePlus.

     

    This might be Red Clover, Trifolium pratense. The leaves are bigger than White Clover, and more pointed. They often have a white crescent on the leaves which helps with id, but not always.

    Compare with the images from Nature Spot, and see what you think http://www.naturespot.org.uk/species/red-clover

     

    Regards Lucy

        I've just checked and it's a perennial, so if it's too late this year to flower it should re grow in the spring and hopefully flower then.

         

        It might "only" be a wildflower, but I think it's pretty enough to have in the garden, and compliments the herbs.

         

        Lucy
