Did You Know?

The four-leaf clover is an uncommon variation of the common, three-leaved clover. The three-leaf clover or shamrock had been used by St. four-leaf-cloverPatrick as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity. According to tradition, such leaves bring good luck to their finders, especially if found accidentally. In addition, each leaf is believed to represent something: the first is for faith, the second is for hope, the third is for love, and the fourth is for luck.

It has been estimated that there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every four-leaf clover; however, this probability has not deterred collectors who have reached records as high as 160,000 four-leaf clovers.

Clovers can have more than four leaves: the most ever recorded is 56, discovered by Shigeo Obara of Hanamaki, Iwate, Japan, on 10 May 2009. Five-leaf clovers are less commonly found naturally than four-leaf clovers; however, they, too, have been successfully cultivated. Children are traditionally told that a five-leaved clover is even luckier than a four-leaved one. Some four-leaf clover collectors, particularly in Ireland, regard the five-leaf clover, known as a rose clover as a particular prize.ย Source.

  1. The “Did You Know?” facts were great! I enjoyed reading them. My mother is the type that can simply look down in a clover patch and find a four leaf clover every single time (at least it seems that way). I remember as a kid having books all over the house that you would be reading and half way through you would find a four leaf clover wrapped in a baggie or something similar that she had found and was pressing in the book. We even had a dog she named Lucky because the day we got her she was sitting there and we were trying to pick a name and my mom looked down at the dog and found a four leaf clover right between her front feet! I’m rambling here but the clover type up there just reminded me of my mom and her four leaf clover finding. I’ve never found one in my life, but I think she’s found enough for everyone!

    Thank you for the chance to enter ๐Ÿ˜€ Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I found a 4 leaf clover once a long time ago but I don’t think it brought me much luck. Thanks for participating!
