Burclover is a perennial which is very similar in appearance to black medic. It contains a three oblong leaflets, the center leaflet being on its own pediole. The leaflets often have brown spots on the upper surface. The flowers of burclover are yellow. Burclover reproduces by seeds from "burred" seed pods as well as spreading prostrate stolons which allows burclover to tolerate close mowing. Burclover is found from Virginia south to Florida, west to Texas and Missouri.
