Sparkling Pink Flowers
Bountiful 5-petaled sparkling pink flowers float above clover-like bright green foliage on graceful stems. The leaves fold at night opening again to greet the new day. Excellent mounding edger, flowers all season, but may take a break if temps really rise. Pink Wood Sorrel, also known as Strawberry Oxalis, delights with its clover-like foliage. A great gift for friends or family as each 3-lobed, clover-like stem can represent good health, good luck and happiness.

Oxalis General Information

Oxalis prefers some shade and moisture. Extremely long blooming but may go dormant as temperatures rise during hottest part of summer. Flowering will return with cooler autumn temps. Well-drained soil is sufficient. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Oxalis Plant Care

May be pruned back hard in midsummer if the mound becomes untidy. Low maintenance and free flowering. Can be divided at any time of year.

Plantable Pots

Our plants are grown in 3.5x3.5x4” plantable pots. Made from 100% biodegradable coconut husk fibers (coir), these pots have tremendous advantages over plastic pots. With better air exchange, this "breathable" pot fosters robust root growth and reduces transplant shock since you can plant the pots directly in the ground. The pot naturally becomes part of the soil on its own over time—no composting required—and since they're made from a renewable resource that requires very little energy, they're earth-friendly too!

100% Guarantee

We offer a 100% unconditional guarantee for all our perennials to reach you in good condition and to grow. If you're not satisfied, we'll reship or refund immediately. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or concerns—we share your passion for gardening and want your new plants to thrive in your border!
