Keywords:Trifolium resupinatum, Reversed Clover, Persian Clover, Fabaceae, new record, Ontario, Canada
We report two populations of Trifolium resupinatum (Reversed Clover, trèfle résupiné) from southern Ontario, confirming it as established in Canada. This Eurasian and north African species was reported in the late 1800s in New Brunswick and Quebec, where it apparently did not persist. Its distribution across the United States is sporadic.
