A shamrock is a young sprig, used as a symbol of eire. Saint patrick, eire's customer saint, is said to have used it as a metaphor for the christian holy trinity. The name shamrock comes from irish seamrog, that's the diminutive of the irish phrase seamair og and really approach "young clover". Shamrock typically refers to either the species trifolium dubium (lesser clover, irish: seamair bhui) or trifolium repens (white clover, irish: seamair bhan). But, different three-leaved plant life—together with medicago lupulina, trifolium pratense, and oxalis acetosella—are occasionally referred to as shamrocks.
The shamrock changed into traditionally used for its medicinal houses and become a popular motif in victorian times. There may be nevertheless not a consensus over the ideal botanical species of clover this is the "authentic" shamrock. John gerard in his herbal of 1597 described the shamrock as trifolium pratense or trifolium pratense flore albo, meaning purple or white clover. He defined the plant in english as "three leaved grasse" or "medow trefoile", "that are called in irish shamrockes". the irish botanist caleb threlkeld, writing in 1726 in his paintings entitled synopsis stirpium hibernicarum or a treatise on local irish flora accompanied gerard in figuring out the shamrock as trifolium pratense, calling it white discipline clover.
