Could it be on the driveway area or unavoidable to drive over? Where was the location of the patch?
I dont think "Isnt my clover lovely" conveys the work and love you have for that patch, in my opinion.
Furthermore, you say your son doesnt value wild vegetation as much as you do - so the clover incident could be just an example of this
In the future, I would clearly state to him: "I really enjoy this patch of clover and wildflowers, they are gorgeous! Please work around it to avoid disturbing it"
Your son is in his 60s, so very set on his mindset, same as you.
Mowing the lawn is not such an easy task, please do not underestimate his effort.
I would just avoid subjects with him that tick you both off.
If it helps, hire somebody to mow the lawn to avoid discussions.
