Our annual end-of-summer contest is here, come on down to the Dave's Garden County Fair!

purple clover

Laurel, DE

My garden is overrun with this. Pretty but, is it invasive? Will it kill or choke any of my other plants like Hosta, Hydrangeas, fern, huchera? I will leave it be if it won't kill my other plants.
Thanks for the input.

Hendersonville, NC(Zone 7a)

In the "lawn," I leave it alone since lawns are not my obsession. In the garden beds, I pull it as soon as I see it since it will spread mightily.

Do you guys know the species name for this? Sounds like it might be a good one for a meadow garden I'd like to do.

Sorry, killdawabbit, I don't know it; unfortunately I think of it as just a weed, so never learned its proper name.
