Love in a Basket (Oxalis triangularis)

Commonly known as Purple Shamrock or Love PlantOxalis triangularis owns its name to the triangle shaped leaves in a deep purple, with a lighter purplish-rose feature in their center. Although the robustly colored leaves are the stars of the show, the plant also produces small, trumpet-shaped flowers in spring in colors of pink or white. The blooms last for several weeks. Another feature of the leaves is they open during the daytime hours and close in the evening.


To keep your Oxalis trangularis also known as Purple Shamrock plant healthy, grow in rich, well-drained potting mix and water when the top inch of soil becomes dry. Maintain moderate humidity, fertilize every two to three weeks, suitable in bright shade light.

This product comes together with a nursery potted plant sitting within a wicker hanging basket.
