Looking for a 4 Leaf Clover!

I decided to put this charming little basket of clover on my table as a centerpiece. But you have to know, this isn't your backyard, everyday kind of clover. This variety has beautiful pink, bell-shaped flowers. The leaves are huge. It gets just the right amount of sunshine in my dining room and everyday there are tender new blossoms.

During the day the clover leaves spread right out and soak up as much light as they can. But in the evening, they close up by folding backwards.

How did I get it? A few months ago I joined a new gardening club and we had a plant swap! I was assured by my fellow gardener that clover would indeed appear and fill out the container...and so it has.
I definitely got the better of the deal.

I have to tell you, I like it for 2 reasons:
1. It didn't die.
2. It lives.

I'm easy to please.

You can get the clover with purple leaves and pink flowers as well. It's really cool and I have heard it attracts leprechauns!

These are my requirements! I have this in green leaf and maroon leaf. I love it! Your little cart is sweet!
