The vibrant, pink douglas clover graces prairies and meadows of the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
Like many clovers, this species is delicious to livestock, so it is vulnerable to trampling and grazing. It is also threatened by continued habitat degradation.

The Centre for Plant Conservation (CPC) is a network of conservation partners working together to save threatened plants in the United States and Canada.
As part of the Centre for Plant Conservation (CPC) network’s efforts to save plants, conservationists at the University of Washington Botanic Garden collected seeds from 50 douglas clover plants in southeast Washington.
This work aims to safeguard the species against loss from habitat degradation and trampling and grazing by livestock.
