Oxalis Iron Cross
Oxalis tetraphylla, exceptionally rewarding, is a bulbous perennial forming a lush mound of rich green leaves composed of 4 heart shaped leaflets, each with a dark purplish blotch at its base. the burgundy marking across the center of the leaves is reminiscent of a cross. During the day the leaves open out to receive sun-light but at night they retract and open up like small umbrellas, adding interest to the plant. From early summer until frost, the handsome foliage is topped by sprays of trumpet shaped bright pink flowers. Ideal in hanging baskets.
Flowers are fairly easy to grow and are perfect for borders, rock gardens, and containers.
