Or, get a shamrock plant
Last year, I learned that the 3-leafed shamrock is a symbol for the Holy Trinity. I’ve had a few of shamrock plants. The varieties that I had bloomed with beautiful white flowers all year long, and they thrive outdoors. I found mine at Wegman’s for as little as $4, and if I would remember to water them, mine would still be healthy. My first one grew as big as a shrub outside. Here’s a link to a story that Sue Scholz wrote in 2013 about the various shamrock plants available and how to care for them.
