Oxalis A - F
of the World
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
