What is the History of the Shamrock?
Shamrocks have long been associated with a variety of meanings. The shamrock was sacred to the Ancients of Ireland, according to mythology, because its leaves are a triad, which was mystical to Celtic religion, as it was in many others. In the 5th century, when introducing Christianity to Ireland, St. Patrick utilized the shamrock to demonstrate the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.
With time, the shamrock took on new meanings. It became a symbol of defiance in the nineteenth century, and anyone who wore it risked being hanged. Thus, the expression “the wearin’ o’ the green” was coined during this period. Today, the shamrock is the most well-known Irish symbol, especially on St. Patrick’s Day, when everyone becomes Irish for a day worldwide!
Many sources believe that the original Irish shamrock (traditionally spelled seamróg, which means “summer plant”) was white clover (Trifolium repens), a common lawn weed native to Ireland. It’s a stem-rooting perennial with trifoliate leaves that’s robust and rhizomatous. A fourth leaflet will occasionally sprout, forming a “four-leaf clover,” which is thought to bring good luck to the person who finds it.
You have a few options if you want to cultivate your shamrock. You can either let the well-known white clover take over your lawn or grow the Americanized variety, Oxalis tetraphylla, sometimes known as the lucky clover. In March, this is the plant you’ll most often see in gift shops.
In most parts of the country, Oxalis tetraphylla is a delicate perennial that is only hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 8 to 9. As a result, it’s commonly grown as a houseplant that goes dormant in the winter. It requires bright light as well as moist, well-drained soil to thrive. Keep the soil just moist when the plant is fixed for the winter, and resume regular watering in the spring when the plant sprouts new growth.
