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.
