Oxalis triangularis | Purple Shamrock | False shamrock
Oxalis triangularis, commonly called 'purple shamrock' or 'false shamrock' due to its triangular leaves of deep purple, is a very good houseplant for the beginner This plant is photophilic, which means that when the light at the end of the day begins to reduce, the foliage of this plant folds up for the night, re-opening again in the morning.
Each plant measures approx 15cm in height and 5cm in width.
PLEASE NOTE THAT MY EXPERIENCE HAS SHOWN THAT THIS PLANT IS VERY LIKELY AND/OR GUARANTEED TO GO LIMP DURING POSTAGE BUT SHOULD RECOVER QUICKLY IF POTTED UP QUICKLY AND KEPT MOIST UPON ARRIVAL. PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS PLANT IF YOU ARE NOT OK WITH THIS.
