Details

Known as a false shamrock because of its trifoliate leaf shape, Oxalis do best in warm and sunny conditions. Like Calatheas, Oxalis plants exhibit a phenomenon know as nyctinasty – they raise and lower their leaves from day to night as a part of their circadian rhythm. Offered hand-potted in four of our best selling earthenware pots, the Oxalis is a bold addition to any sill.

Plant Bio

Native to the warm tropical climates of South America, the Oxalis is a perennial plant from the family Oxalidaceae. From over 800 species, the Oxalis traiangularis is the one most commonly cultivated as a houseplant. It is also known as a wood sorrel or a false shamrock, because of its trifoliate leaf shape. Oxalis do best in warm and sunny conditions. During the wintertime, most oxalis kept as houseplants will be through a semi-dormant phase if not receiving enough light. But come spring, they’ll bounce back in all their glory. Like Calatheas, Oxalis plants exhibit a phenomenon know as nyctinasty – they raise and lower their leaves from day to night as a part of their circadian rhythm.
