Oxalis triangularis 'False Shamrock'
3.5” PURPLE/FALSE SHAMROCK
USDA Zones 8a-11
Oxalis triangularis is a blooming edible perennial with trifoliate, deep purple foliage. I’m the spring it produces trumpet shaped light purple, pink, or white blooms, which last for several weeks. At peak growth, your plant should reach around 12” tall.
An interesting & unique feature that makes this plant a must have is that it’s leaves close at night like an umbrella! The white/purple blooms follow suite & close at night like the leaves do.
This Oxalis is typically grown as a house plant in bright light, but can also be planted outside, preferably in light shade.
To keep your ‘False Shamrock’ thriving, plant in a well drained potting mix & pot (with a drainage hole) & water when the top inch of the soil is dry. The bulbs or fibrous roots will rot if planted in soils that are too heavy or retain too much water. The addition of slow release fertilizer is recommended.
You will receive a 3.5” size plant bare root. When you receive your package, remove the plant as soon as possible! Plant in a well drained pot & soil mix, water until soil is saturated, & watch your new plant grow!
WARNING: this plant could have a 1-2 week recovery time! It is a tough plant, but a delicate shipment — it doesn’t like being in a box! When it arrives, it will lay flat down, but new growth will appear & stand up within 1-2 weeks :)
