What are the odds of finding a four-leaf clover?
1 in 10,000
It’s Saint Patrick’s Day and, as Irish legend would have it, finding a four-leaf clover would make you extra lucky. This myth likely arose because four-leaf clovers are rare finds — the result of an equally rare genetic mutation in the clover plant. The probability of finding a four-leaf clover is 1-in-10,000, but don't tell that to Glen Alpine resident Suzi Mekhitarian who plucked 21 four-leaf clovers from her front yard in 2014. Some legends say that the four leaves are supposed to stand for faith, hope, love, and luck.
