Purple Shamrock Oxalis Triangularis

Often called a false shamrock, this plant isn’t a clover at all, but is commonly seen during March to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Their triangular, three petaled, purple foliage is mottled with lavender and the leaves appear to float above a thin green stem. Oxalis grow from a rhizome and have a bulb-like or tuberous root system. They go through a dormant period once a year and may thin out or drop leaves during summer months. Cut back on watering during this time and let plant “rest” and it will be followed by another active growing period when temps cool.
>>FUN FACT Their leaves move with the time of day! When it is bright, the leaves lay flat open and when it is dark, they fold into themselves, similar to prayer plants.
