Bright purple, triangular-shaped leaves and pink blossoms make this vigorous Oxalis a must-have for the container garden. The vivid purple color will amaze you! Grow in moist soil in bright, indirect light. In zones 7-10, it's often grown as an attractive ground cover.

Glowing purple foliage emerges from perennial bulbils in early summer, holding color all season. Light lavender pink flowers top the clumps in fall. This is a non aggressive form of oxalis! Lovely in the garden...morning sun or a lightly shaded location in moist well drained soil; also nice in pots and will live as an indoor plant.

Can you say super purple!! This is one of my personal favorites. This bright purple Oxalis will brighten anyones day, loves shade and spreads making it a great choice for ground cover. Oxalis produces an underground bulb that comes back year after year from zones 7-10 Doesnt mind the heat. Grown in masses, Purple Shamrock makes a lovely groundcover or grow it in a hanging basket and allow the lovely lilac flowers to gracefully cascade over the sides. Grow this beauty in a container as an attractive accent plant for your deck or patio or as an indoor plant. I love these so much I hate to sell them and see them leave the greenhouse.

This amazing heat-loving false shamrock comes from our friends at Yucca Do, who got it from a Houston gardener named Francis, who discovered it as a garden seedling. Oxalis 'Francis' makes a 8" tall x 1' wide clump of 3-lobed shamrock-like bright purple leaves that look great all summer. The clumps are topped in fall with light lavender flowers just atop the foliage. Oxalis 'Francis' is a lighter purple than Oxalis 'Triangularis', that almost glows. We think this is indeed a very special selection.
