Here's a secret which no other Irishman knows....
There is no such thing as a four leaf clover.
Yes, there is, but it is a water plant, never grows on land.
Only four leaf clovers grow in the water below the surface.
Yes, that is true.
No it's not.
I did not know there were any land based 4 leafers.
Four Leaf Clover (Marsilea drummondii)
The Four Leaf Clover, also known as the Clover Fern, originates from inland Australia. It has two pairs of leaflets arranged in a four leaf clover pattern. The Four Leaf Clover can grow in a number of different soil types, ranging from sands to clays. Under the proper conditions, this fern will form a thick carpet with its numerous runners. It is amphibious, and will grow either partially or fully submersed.
