What is the True "Shamrock"?
St. Patrick's Day is coming up and I thought it might be interesting to find out a little bit about that plant behind the holiday. <br/>Oxalis is often sold under the heading of "Shamrock" but this is not the "Shamrock" <br/>I found an article about the real plant and its not in the Oxalis family at all but Trifolium repens 'Dutch Clover or White Clover. <br/>Growing up in a Scot-Irish household I was intrigued with the clover and now as an adult I plant it in my lawn for the leaves and the flowers. <br/>I found an interesting article on line and I am sharing the link to the site. <br/>Happy Gardening & Happy St.Patrick's Day! Cheers!
