The scoop on Oxalis Iron Cross

This four-leaf clover relative looks like an oversized version of the lucky type you might find on the edge of your lawn except that each leaf is marked with a deep purple splotch. Cluster the four leaves per stem together and the splotches form a colorful circle. Iron Cross is proof positive that plants with non-stop jazzy foliage can rival those with the occasional bright flower. Easy, dramatic and infinitely mixable.

This is a Leafari staff tested and recommended variety.
