We happened upon this plant years ago and have used it every season since. It adds a rich shot of purple courtesy of the fun, triangular leaves. The flowers are small, pale pink and plentiful. And triangularis is tough; it's come back from crushing hail (poor things had to start over), drought (Seriously? You forgot to water my plants while I was in Yellowstone?) and winds that knocked the tomato plants flat. Trust us, once you go here, there's no coming back.
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.
