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

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.  It is debated whether the fourth leaflet is caused genetically or environmentally. Its relative rarity suggests a possible recessive gene appearing at a low frequency. Alternatively, four-leaf clovers could be caused by somatic mutation or a developmental error of environmental causes. They could also be caused by the interaction of several genes that happen to segregate in the individual plant. It is possible all four explanations could apply to individual cases.

Researchers from the University of Georgia have reported finding the gene that turns ordinary three-leaf clovers into the coveted four-leaf types. Masked by the three-leaf gene and strongly influenced by environmental condition, molecular markers now make it possible to detect the presence of the gene for four-leaves and for breeders to work with it. The results of the study, which also located two other leaf traits in the white-clover genome, were reported in the July/August 2010 edition of Crop Science, published by the Crop Science Society of America.

The other leaf traits, the red fleck mark and red midrib, a herringbone pattern that runs down the center of each leaflet in a bold red color, were mapped to nearby locations, resolving a century-old question as to whether these leaf traits were controlled by one gene or two separate genes.

White clover has many genes that affect leaf color and shape, and the three in the study were very rare. These traits can be strikingly beautiful, particularly if combined with others, and can turn clover into an ornamental plant for use in flower beds.

Richard Mabey alleges, in Flora Britannica, that there are farms in the US which specialize in four-leaf clovers, producing as many as 10,000 a day (to be sealed in plastic as "lucky charms") by feeding a secret, genetically-engineered ingredient to the plants to encourage the aberration (there are, however, widely-available cultivars that regularly produce leaves with multiple leaflets – see below). Mabey also states that children learn that a five-leaved clover is even luckier than a four-leaved one. Five-leaf clovers are less commonly found naturally than four-leaf clovers; however, they, too, have been successfully cultivated. --Wiki

when i think ireland, i think of the IRA, leprechaun, and clover, not necessarily in that order. 

then the word "shamrock" comes in.






The Erin Go Bragh flag, originally of Saint Patrick's Battalion, uses an angelic Cláirseach, a medieval Irish harp, cradled in a wreath of clover. A flag strongly symbolic of Irish nationalism, it is often seen on Saint Patrick's Day, usually displayed during the parades. (wikipedia)

"clover" and "shamrock" confuses.  now i know why.

The shamrock is a three-leaved old white clover. It is known as a symbol of Ireland, with St. Patrick having used it as a metaphor for the Christian Trinity. The name shamrock is derived from Irish seamróg, which is the diminutive version of the Irish word for clover (seamair). (wikipedia)

it is not to be confused with four-leaf clover; shamrock is a three-leaf clover after all.

Traditionally, shamrock is said to have been used by Saint Patrick to illustrate the Christian doctrine of the Trinity when Christianising Ireland in the 5th century. However, this is described by the Oxford English Dictionary a "a late tradition", first recorded in 1726, and is probably false. Nonetheless, since the 18th century, shamrock has been used as a symbol of Ireland in a similar way to how a rose is used for England, thistle for Scotland and leek for Wales. (wikipedia)

the shamrock (aka three-leaf clover) has truly been around by tradition:

The shamrock signified the First Division of the Second Corps of the Army of the Potomac in the American Civil War, which contained the Irish Brigade. It was red as were all of the division insignia of that corps and still be seen on the regimental coat of arms of "The Fighting Sixty-Ninth".

The flag of the city of Montreal, Quebec, Canada has a shamrock that is located in the lower right quadrant. The shamrock represents the Irish population, one of the four major ethnic groups that made up the population of the city in the 19th century when the arms were designed.

The Flag of Montreal; the shamrock is located in the lower right corner.

The shamrock is featured in the Canadian coat-of-arms.

The shamrock is featured on the passport stamp of Montserrat, many of whose citizens are of Irish descent.

Dili ni makaon Miss Isles, kana lang Shamrock nga Otap sa Cebu lol.St.Patrick day is the biggest event for the Irish.That's the time the President of Ireland will give shamrock leaf to The president of America to start the St.Patrick celebration.Thats the time too the rivers of America turn to green.For the record Almost all American president had Irish roots including Obama.

hahaha!  sikata tuod tanoma uy.  imagine diay, di lang mahiadto sa president sa u.s., naangin pa ang otap sa cebu. ;D  btw, kanang shamrock otap sa cebu, ang original owner ana (kay wa ko kahibawo kun mao ba gihapon karon) kay taga-valencia, bohol.  i know this for a fact kay usa sa mga anak classmate nako sa high school.  imagine, bisag unsaon, everything goes back to bohol, be it vrglguaps or shamrock otap. ;D
