Shamrocks for St. Patrick’s Day

Today, everyone is Irish, so here are some shamrocks from my garden for you.

In the spring and summer, shamrocks have a profusion of lovely white flowers.

Shamrocks are happiest in moist, but well-drained soil. They enjoy full sun. You can buy them almost anywhere that sells plants at this time of year. I bought mine at the grocery store several years ago, and they are dong well. They did suffer a bit from the freeze we had in February, but are coming back now.
