Sprouting up in my grass but not sure what it is. Almost looks like a clover of some kind but doesn't get very tall and doesn't seem to bloom (yet)...

In terms of size, it seems most likely to be the Trifolium campestre! The other 2 look too small...

Trifolium campestre blooms in the early spring here but maybe it blooms later up north. It's actually the smallest of the clovers that blooms here, smaller than Japanese clover. The leaves on T. campestre also have a slight serration.

Hopefully, yours will bloom soon and you will know for sure. Smiling

thanks, Christine--I guess size is hard to tell from the photos! Big Grin
It hasn't bloomed yet, but I hope it does.
