Weed or Flower

Asked May 14, 2019, 9:00 PM EDT

My daughter found these near her work and wants to use some for fillers in a bouquet. What are they?

I couldn't ID this myself, so I sent a request to the FABULOUS Plant Identification page on Facebook. Professional plant people usually help really quickly; they responded that this is trifolium arvense. Here's a link to info about this plant. Since it grows wild, I guess you could consider it a weed; I prefer to think of it as a wildflower!

https://www.illinoiswildflowers.info/weeds/plants/rf_clover.html gives good info about this plant, although it only talks about it in Illinois.
