Features & Attributes

Fanny Shamrock's attractive fan-shaped compound leaves emerge light green, turning forest green in color with showy grayish green variegation throughout the year. It features dainty white star-shaped flowers at the ends of the stems from late spring to early summer.

This is a dense herbaceous houseplant with a mounded form. This plant can be pruned at any time to keep it looking its best.

Planting & Growing

When grown indoors, Fanny Shamrock can be expected to grow to be about 12 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 15 inches. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 10 years. This houseplant performs well in both bright or indirect sunlight and strong artificial light, and can therefore be situated in almost any well-lit room or location. It does best in average to evenly moist soil, but will not tolerate standing water. The surface of the soil shouldn't be allowed to dry out completely, and so you should expect to water this plant once and possibly even twice each week. Be aware that your particular watering schedule may vary depending on its location in the room, the pot size, plant size and other conditions; if in doubt, ask one of our experts in the store for advice. It is not particular as to soil type or pH; an average potting soil should work just fine.

There are many factors that will affect the ultimate height, spread and overall performance of a plant when grown indoors; among them, the size of the pot it's growing in, the amount of light it receives, watering frequency, the pruning regimen and repotting schedule. Use the information described here as a guideline only; individual performance can and will vary. Please contact the store to speak with one of our experts if you are interested in further details concerning recommendations on pot size, watering, pruning, repotting, etc.
