Oxalis Maroon Leaf [floribunda?] Oxalis Maroon Leaf [floribunda?]
Stock Number: 40708
Availability: In Stock
Family: Oxalidaceae
Cultural Code: HP CGH what's this?

Extraordinary dark glowing maroon leaves cascade from the central bundle of buried bublets--altho bulbous this easily grown species remains evergreen with sufficient heat & light with cycles of lilac flower clusters blooming throughout the seasons. Perfect choice for those not comfortable with the dormant cycles of the more famous purple leaved Oxalis regnellii atropurpurea (triangularis) which tyically rests during the winter to emerge from its pot until early spring. This non-dormant purple foliaged Oxalis deserves to be more popular than it currently is--especially as it is a real trooper in sunny windowboxes and patio urns of summertime, as well as the winter windowsill.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
