Oxalis purpurea garnet is another stunning oxalis plant. It’s leaves start off green, then turn to this beautiful deep garnet colour. It also produces gorgeous candy pink flowers, with a yellow throat, held just above the foliage. It is a Winter growing bulb and 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 this beautiful colour and to keep it growing compact, or it will lose the shape and become ‘leggy’. Bulbs multiply every growing year. Truly a stunningly different plant to have. Will be posted in it’s pot, but some of the leaves will be trimmed off. If any other leaves arrive 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.
