Winged Oxalis (Oxalis rusciformis)
Never out of bloom and often engulfed in cheery yellow flowers, this Brazilian species remains compact in form and tolerant of moderate light. The trilobed leaves form on the new growth at the tips of shiny wing-shaped leaf stems or petioles. They fall off after a short time and what remains are the leaf petioles that give the plant its foliage. Its short stature makes it perfect for windowsills or gardens with limited space.

  1. Unusual, easy! Review by FLL Jeff
    How do you rate this product?

    I've had this for a couple of years now, growing in a clay pot on the patio year round here in South Florida. Slow growing but constantly in bloom. So easy - just water it once or twice a week in the dry season - no extra water needed at all when it rains every day. Mine is growing in mostly bright shade but depending on the season it gets some direct sun, mostly in the winter. I suspect it would do very well in a sunny window in northern climates. And btw I've never fertilized it - well maybe a little miracle grow a couple of times a year when someone else in the household has watered it. What makes it really unusual is the fact that it doesn't resemble what I've always known as Oxalis. Not even remotely similar to the familiar "shamrock" oxalis plants - or the dreaded weedy version that pops up all over the lawn! This one is more like a miniature shrub with it's woody stems and unique, decidedly UN-shamrock or clover looking leaves. (Posted on 5/21/2018)
