Oxalis Triangularis

Oxalis triangularis, commonly known as the False Shamrock or Purple Shamrock, is a charming perennial plant appreciated for its distinctive triangular-shaped leaves. Native to Brazil, this plant is a member of the Oxalidaceae family. The deep purple to burgundy colouration of its leaves, which are typically divided into three heart-shaped segments, adds a unique ornamental quality to indoor and outdoor gardens. The foliage opens during the day and folds up at night, contributing to its fascinating behaviour.

In addition to its aesthetically pleasing appearance, Oxalis triangularis produces small, delicate, trumpet-shaped flowers that can be white or pale pink. The plant prefers well-draining soil and moderate sunlight, making it a popular choice for indoor cultivation in containers. However, it is important to note that Oxalis triangularis can be mildly toxic, so precautions should be taken to keep it away from curious pets and small children. Overall, this plant is valued for its striking foliage and the touch of whimsy it brings to garden spaces.
