Southern Gardening: Gardeners find luck with shamrocks
St. Patrick’s Day triggers increased interest in bringing home from the garden center a three-leafed shamrock. In addition to the traditional green, more and more varieties are showing up with gorgeous purple to almost black foliage.
The Charmed series offers Velvet and Wine varieties, both with black/purple foliage and pink flowers. During the summer months, place shamrocks outside in full shade as the sun will bleach the leaves. These plants will get 12 to 16 inches tall and wide. Velvet and Wine make good planting partners in shade containers. As filler plants, they will mingle and poke out between the other plants in the container.
