Oxalis species P - Z
of the World
O. purpurea Lavender and White
Oxalis is an enormous genus, with the majority coming from South America and South Africa. Only a
few South American species are included in this list, and are noted as such. Oxalis are wonderful
"collector's items" -- you know you have been bitten by the bug when, upon seeing their dazzling
jewel-like flowers and different leaf forms, you experience an irrepressible urge to possess more! The
South African species are largely winter-growers, brightening the dreary months with their exuberant
flowers, then go dormant in summer. They are best appreciated as container plants, and need sun to
open their flowers. SHIPS JUNE-SEPTEMBER
