Four leaf clovers are a very rare variation of the three-leaf clover. If you have ever tried to find a four or five leaf clover you will know they are not easy to find and rare. It is estimated there are about 10,000 three-leaf clovers for every one four-leaf clover and five leaf clover even rarer.
Each leaf on a four or five leaf clover is assigned an attribute. Leaf one: Hope. Leaf two: Faith. Leaf three: Love. Leaf four: Luck.
The legends and stories regarding four leaf clovers have been passed down in cultures for generations. Some say Eve carried a four leaf clover out of the Garden of Eden. Others say four-leaf clovers are Celtic charms that bring a magical protection and ward off bad luck. Some people say a four leaf clover brings good luck. Whatever you believe four leaf clovers are rare it is considered luck to find them.
The photos are examples of the four leaf clovers. Each is unique. So you may not get one of the ones in the photos. You purchase a four leaf clover you will be sent one real four leaf clover in a plastic sleeve.
The four leaf clovers I find while out walking in the Warwickshire countryside. They are not cultivated, so a true lucky find. As they are found out in the countryside they are often not perfect, they may have been nibbled by an insect. Each has been carefully hand-picked, dried and pressed by myself.
