White sweet clover is a tall, slender plant with long spike of small white flowers.  Along roadsides, it usually forms dense patches, often 4 to 5 feet tall.  Yellow sweet clover looks just about identical, except that it has yellow flower spikes.  Both are exotics of Eurasian origin and are categorized as moderatly invasive.
