Product Information

OXALIS

Iron Cross

Has picked up many names over the years, Good Luck Plant, Good Luck Shamrock and The Shamrock Plant are but a few.

Introduced during the Victorian times this charming non-invasive Oxalis has remained popular ever since.

Oxalis Iron Cross produces shamrock or four leaf clover like foliage and smashing pink flowers so it's not just the “good luck” factor that makes these little bulbs so attractive, it’s also their versatility and good looks.

They are hardy, grow happily indoors or out and produce flowers throughout the summer.

Even if it never flowered, the foliage is so gorgeous it deserves a place in the garden for that reason alone.

The soft green leaves have the distinctive shamrock or clover shape but are marked with a dark purple like variegation in the centre resembling a cross.

In early summer, it begins its long blooming period, the large, five-petaled, silky crimson flowers with green throat and yellow stamens are simply beautiful.

Both leaves and blooms are edible in small amounts and have a lemony, tart taste.

Added to salads, they really brighten up the dish in terms of both flavour and colour.

The plants grow in clumps and will reach up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall.

Unlike most Oxalis species which enjoy moist shade this one prefers a dry sunny site.
