Oxalis | 12cm | Houseplant

Oxalis triangularis

Also known as a False Shamrock, Oxalis is the perfect plant for St Patrick's day! The main attraction of this plant is the stunning foliage, now available in a beautiful deep, dark purple and fresh, vibrant green.

The plant produces delicate white flowers, usually blooming in summer. The most striking thing about Oxalis is the way the leaves move towards light, then appear to 'close' at night. You will need to turn this plant from time to time, to avoid it leaning too heavily to one side.

Oxalis is super low maintenance yet high impact! 

Comes in a 12cm nursery pot, ceramic pot not included.
