Shamrock is a little three leaved plant like a miniature clover. It grows in damp sheltered areas. Used to be worn in the lapels on St. Patrick's day.

It's not for certain which plant is the true shamrock, but you can grab a piece of any clover and stick it in your lapel or hair on St. Patrick's Day and not be far wrong.

what do you mean the ''true shamrock'' ? The shamrock is like a four leaf clover but with three instead often found in ireland - i have lots in my garden! it was used by St. Patrick to represent the holy trinity.
