Oxalis brasiliensis

Every Spring I look forward to this beautiful, beautiful S. American Oxalis bursting into a mass of brightly colored blooms from late Feb. thru early Summer. Held a few inches above the foliage, the good-sized upward facing hot-pink blooms reveal a deep magenta throat highlighted by golden anthers. Not to be outdone by the bloom, the glossy shamrock foliage forms a handsome, useful 6” x 16” weed-suppressing mat. Though said to thrive in dry-rock garden soils, ours loves growing in front of our rich, well-drained garden and sample pots in part shade receiving average water. NOT INVASIVE and goes dormant for a month or so in Aug. Deer resistant.
