Key Tips for Success: The shamrock is valued for it's interesting "Good Luck"  three-parted leaves, so the flowers are a bonus.  Most varieties do benefit from a rest period of several months.  After blooming, decrease watering and temperature 50-60.  Cut back foliage or allow it to die down.  Repotting and division of overgrown plants should be done at this time.  Resuming regular watering, temperature and fertilization will start your Shamrock on it's way to blooming again.  Semi-hardy outdoors.
