Hop clover is a low plant with a yellow flower head. The flower itself looks much like any other clover flower, only it is yellow. The leaves are sessile (sess-ile) meaning they are attached directly to the plant's main stem without a stalk. It does not grow much taller than about a foot high. When the flower gets old, it turns brown and paper-like.
