- Genuine four-leaf clovers come from the white clover plant.
- Legend states that Eve carried a four leaf clover when she left the Garden of Eden.
- The early Celts of Wales considered it a charm against evil spirits.
- Children in the middle ages believed if they carried a four-leaf clover they would be able to see fairies.
- For every four-leaf clover, there are approximately 10,000 three-leaf clovers.
- In a true four-leaf clover from the white clover plant, the fourth clover is smaller than the other three.
And now, this special “Lucky Clover Giveaway Event” could bring luck your way!
