What’s the difference between a four-leaf clover and a shamrock?

I guess I get where this can be confusing, because both are clovers, but it’s pretty clear: A shamrock has three leaves, and a four-leaf clover has, well, four.

Though there are around 300 species of clover, a shamrock isn't one of them—in fact, it could be any of them. Any type of clover that typically has three leaves can be considered a shamrock. The shamrock is the main symbol of St. Patrick’s Day and all things Irish because it’s supposedly what St. Patrick used to illustrate the concept of the Holy Trinity. Four-leaf clovers, on the other hand, are just freaks of nature in those same species of clover.

Is there such thing as a purple rose?

There are light purple or lavender roses, and even roses called "purple splash" that are part purple and have small and few petals. As for the traditional looking Tea Rose that is Purple?...not yet.

It seems Blue and Purple are the most difficult colors to create in roses.

Happy Gardening,

Can you make a candle out of a sampaguita flower?

yes. I have never heard of making a candle out of a flower before. Maybe use the flower as a base and dip it in hot wax over and over again and put a wick in the center. However, it should be possible to extract oil from the flower, retaining it's smell of jasmine. If you had enough of them, you would be able to scent a candle. You could also embed the flower itself in the hot wax and not only get some scent out of it as it burns, but it would look pretty at the side of the candle.

A bit more:

I would advise letting the flower dry first, otherwise the moisture in the flower may rot inside the wax. You can dry flowers using a food dehydrator, or by placing them in the oven on the top rack, and on the "warm" setting for about 30 minutes, then turn off the oven and let them remain overnight without opening the oven door.

What do you call many flowers on one stem?

A florist calls many flowers on one stem a "spray"; for example spray mums or spray roses.

A botanist would call a number of flowers on one stem an "inflorescence" and then use other words to describe how exactly the flowers are arranged on the stem, such as "spike" (ex. snapdragons), "panicle" (ex. blue flax) or "umbel" (ex. yarrow).

What does 6 red roses and 1 pink rose mean?

You'd have to ask the person who sent them to you to know for sure, but my interpretation would be that the red roses represent love, while the single pink rose could mean that out of a sea of potential loves, you are 'the one'.

Can photosynthesis occur under water?

Yes, although only when the water is clear and shallow enough for sunlight to travel through the water to plants like algae helping them survive. However, some algea species are able to live further down and photosynthesize. Rhodophyta, red algea, is able to photosynthesize because of a pigment called phycoerythrin which allows them to absorb more blue light wavelengths. The fact that it can absorb blue light is important these shorter wavelengths are able to penetrate into the water further.
