Oxalis palmifrons (Palm-leaf False Shamrock).

Oxalis palmifrions is truly one of mother nature’s most beautiful plants, native to south Africa where it’s dormant during the summer and comes to life during the cooler months. This plant is said to look like mini palm trees from above. It has attractive lush green foliage which can turn red/orange and can start to flower as the new growing season starts annually. Oxalis palmifrons is a very slow low growing perennial and can ten years to reach two foot wide.

This plant is particularly hardy to -10 but needs to be in a free-draining soil mix over the winter growing season. Can be grown in a dry bright spot in the garden or indoors, make sure not to get the bottom of this plant waterlogged, it will appreciate a good top dress layer.

This plant is summer dormant. These plants are winter growers and prefer lower temperatures during this time.
