Four-leaf clovers, also known as shamrocks, are said to bring good luck to those who pluck them. But according to Orlando de Lange, a Plant Molecular Biologist at UW, Americans have long mistaken the Oxalis triangularis, an entirely unrelated plant, for shamrocks. In fact, only a small handful have ever been cultivated on a large scale. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, learn about this sham shamrock and "the role of chance in selecting the plants that we eat and grow for pleasure."
