In Texas the true clovers do not represent a group of as much economic importance as the bur clovers (Medicago) and the sweet clovers (Melilotus). Trifolium repens, however, is widely grown in lawns and pastures. The native species, especially T. amphianthum, are of some value in pastures in the eastern half of the state. According to herbarium records, true clovers are lacking in the Panhandle and Southern Plains regions of Texas, and only one species is reported from the Trans-Pecos. It is likely, however, that introduced species do grow in these sections.
