Heather

Heather can be found growing wild in many colours but it is the white variety that is considered to be lucky. This belief is thought to be because it was the only type of heather left which was free from bloodstains when the Picts were slaughtered. Scotland of course is famous for heather where similar reasons for white heather being lucky apply. It is said that "heather will never grow over the grave of the clans".
