Oxalis triangularis "Atropurpurea" 2.5" round nursery pot
Oxalis species, also known as wood sorrel, lucky shamrock plant, and false shamrock are largely native to Africa and South America, though there are a number of species native to North America, including Montana. These plants have between three and ten clover-like leaves that fold closed at night. Many oxalis species make good houseplants due to their shade tolerance and ease of growing in containers, and are prized for their beautiful and interesting foliage and belief to bring luck. Some varieties are tougher to grower error than others.
Oxalis triangularis "Atropurpurea" is a stunning variety that has trios of triangular shaped leaves with deep black edging centered with wine red to dark plum purple, with small insignificant light pink bell-shaped flowers in the spring. Atropurpurea grows about six inches in height, but can get to be up to ten inches tall. For fuller bushy looking plantings plant multiples in the same pot. This variety is tolerant of shade. Oxalis triangularis likes some humidity, tolerates a range of humidity well, and makes a lovely companion plant for other low light houseplants such as begonias and wandering Jew. This species grows best when allowed to go dormant for a short period of time during the winter.
This is a houseplant difficulty level 1 plant; beginner difficulty, easy care and forgiving of most errors.
