Lesser Yellow Trefoil

(Trifolium dubium) Is this the true shamrock? Very likely, it seems (Britten). A recent (1988) survey showed that more people (46% of those replying) were convinced that this was the true shamrock rather than other clovers (Nelson). One difficulty about this is the belief that the shamrock is peculiar to Ireland and will not grow out of that country. But this plant is common all over Europe. Another Irish belief is that shamrock does not flower. This is understandable, given that the demand for it is in March, and no clover will be in flower then. (see also SHAMROCK)
