We all need a little bit of luck in our lives, some people get their luck from a rabbit’s foot or a horseshoe, but the first thing that I think of when it comes to plants that put a little extra luck in your life is a clover, specifically a four-leaf clover. I can remember searching our yard as a child to find a four-leaf clover for hours, only to be left disappointed. Those rare times when I did find one with four leaves, I pressed them into a page in my diary to increase my luck. There are actually a lot of plants that you can consider for your home or garden that can increase your luck.

Roses are plants that are considered to bring love, luck, and healing to your life, but different colored blooms can have different meanings. Most roses are easy to manage, but they only grow well in zones seven, eight, and nine. Roses do require about an inch of water each week, so you will need to grow them in an area where rain is plentiful. However, they like well-drained soil, so don’t allow the roots to set in soaked soil because root rot can form. In addition, most roses need about six to eight hours of direct sun each day.
Honeysuckle is a fragrant plant that not only makes your garden smell delightful, it is a plant that is said to bring good luck. Honeysuckles, which grow best in zones four through nine, requires a lot of sunlight and well-drained soil.
