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
