What a fun color this frost sensitive annual shamrock brings to your landscape or container gardens! Deep plum purple triangular shaped leaves on bright green stems sport blush pink flowers...what’s not to love? This shade tolerant annual will bring that much needed color to that sun challenged spot in your landscape or shaded patio garden. Grow in sun or shade, be aware that too much sun can scorch the leaves.

Native to Brazil in South America, zones 8a through 11b can grow this plant as a year round ground cover. Zones 2-7 will enjoy it as a spring and summer annual and bring it indoors for the winter to enjoy its unusual color year round. Oxalis triangularis has a charming habit of closing its leaves at night and unfurling them in the morning light.

Charmed Wine Shamrock Care

Easy to grow and care for, give O. triangularis a sandy, loamy soil that drains well. It prefers a soil pH of 5.8 to 6.2 so it pairs well with other slightly acid soil loving annuals. Fertilize once a season for in ground plantings and once a month for container plants for lush growth. Too little light can cause leggy, lanky growth habits, so be sure to plant where it receives some sun. Water only when dry and don’t place them where the ground is soggy as it hates to have wet feet.

Deadheading is not necessary as the blush pink flowers will clean up after themselves. Pruning is not recommended, but cutting back to the soil should it become leggy due to not enough light will encourage new growth and flowering. Pairing this wonderful rich colored foliage with bright calibrachoa, superbena, lantana, caladium and coleus makes a wonderful display for your container garden.

Charmed Wine Shamrock Spacing

Space plantings out 12 to 14 inches as this light shade loving annual can grow up to 16 inches tall and spread out to 12 inches wide. This variety of oxalis does not spread wildly and become invasive so rest assured it will behave in your landscape garden. Mass it out in woodland edges as it is deer and rabbit resistant. Divide plants in warmer regions while actively growing but be aware that the divisions will be cold sensitive afterward and should be protected in winter.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
