Hi

This clover-shaped plant keeps appearing wherever I have black grass in my garden. Image attached. Any pointers?

It is Oxalis.
Probably Oxalis corniculata. It will have yellow flowers.

Not black grass.....that is Ophiopogon planiscapus 'Nigrescens'
Related to Asparagus!

I would have known that Razz, it was probably introduced in the pot you bought the black grass in, remove it by digging up the plant and teasing it out otherwise it will become a nuisance.
