    @NiallC.On the other hand, these are plants the commonly are found together, so a single question will IMO helps other users. The plant phytosociology is very important for identification of wild plants (and weed) Aug 30 '17 at 15:31
  • Welp the one front and center is clover, sometimes considered a weed other times used as a cover crop or even a lawn substitute. The other with a pink flower might be swamp milkweed. Then the lobed leaves look like dandelion!

The plant with white/rose flowers is Polygonum aviculare (common knotgrass). Usually considered weed.

Additionally I would say Capsella bursa-pastoris, for the leaves behind, but I'm not sure.


The three leaved plant (which I'm assuming you're asking about) looks like Trifolium repens (white clover). Its an herbaceous perennial that grows where there a lack of nitrogen, and if often found in lawns.
