Four-leafed clovers are traditionally good luck, but what about five-leafed clovers, or more? Susan Greenlaw of Belfast found a six-leafed clover June 18 in front of an apartment building on High Street in Belfast, and yes, it really had six leaves.

Greenlaw said she spotted the sixfoil shamrock after she happened to look down in a clover patch in front of the building and noticed one that looked like it had more than three leaves. She was surprised to find that it had quite a few more.

Six-leafed clovers, though presumably rarer than their four-leaved counterparts, aren’t unheard-of. According to Guinness World Records (,  the most leaves ever found on a single clover stem is 18, discovered by Shigeo Obara of Hanamaki City, Iwate, Japan, in 2002.

Greenlaw will have to let us know if it brings good luck.
