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.
Oxalis are easy care and easy to plant. To get them going, just poke the funny looking little bulbs 1" into the soil. Add a little water. You're done.
This is a Leafari staff tested and recommended variety.
