Little pink Shamrock

beegood_gwMay 6, 2010

Hi I'm new to this forum but am hoping some one can help me. Does anyone know where I can get some bulbs for that little old fashioned pink shamrock. Just little green leaves and the flowers are small and a pretty pink. All you can find now have purple leaves or big green leaves with white flowers. TIA

I have one growing in a pot right now. I just got it though and have no idea when would be a good time to ship it and stuff.

Oh how I would love that but sadly one cannot ship from USA to Canada. Border people frown on that big time BOO HOO.They are so hard to find now at least around here. You are lucky to have one.

That's too bad. I knew you can't take potatoes over the border but I didn't realize all plants were that way.

...you know... I'm going to be in Ontario in a few weeks. Perhaps I could mail the bulbs from one of the towns there. Do you think that would work?

Hi beegood,

I don't know about Canada, but down here shamrocks are seasonal. Even the small pink ones. Unless you can find someone on the forum, in Canada, who is willing to help, you may have to wait until next March.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I did find someone locally that will share a few. But thank you for the offer. Larry-- I jst want it as a houseplant.
