Oxalis palmifrons would have to be one of the most unique plants available today. It is a low-growing perennial with stunning foliage, quite unlike other Oxalis varieties. Not hard to see how it has received it’s name. It is a Winter growing bulb and can produce light pink flowers held just above the foliage. It goes dormant when the heat of summer arrives. You can then divide bulbs and re-pot. Store in it’s pot, in a cool, dry place and bring out into the sun in Autumn. When the plant begins to emerge from the medium, watering can begin. Keep in full Winter sun, to keep it growing compact, or it will lose the shape it is grown for. Bulbs multiply every growing year. Truly a stunningly different plant to have. Will be posted in it’s pot. If any leaves are damaged, cut them off and it will keep on growing.
Water requirements: Medium. Allow to dry out between waterings.
Maintenance: Low. Fertilise at 25% in growing season with soluble fertilizer.
