Product Information

This native of South Africa is simply beautiful! You will see the raspberry ripple coloured, funnel shaped flowers appear soon after planting from November onwards. Perfect for the front of pots or borders.

Grow them on pots on your decking, balconies or terraces - they really are a joy to behold and the flowers will make your garden a talking point! They're really easy to grow, and being so exotic looking, your friends and family will truly thing you are blessed with green fingers!

Stunning when in full bloom, the flowers are even more striking when in bud, when the flowers are marked with vivid crimson-pink stripes, hence its more common name, the Candy Cane Sorrel. This delightful little plant is something uniquely special, with its bright white, funnel-shaped flowers edged with colour.

Even when not in flower, this striped oxalis will continue to delight with its mound of green leaves which forms in spring, adding subtle texture and colour to your garden.

Top Tips

After flowering, leave the foliage to die down naturally and cut back when it has turned yellow.

Care Information

  • The small bulbs of Oxalis Versicolor will naturalise over the years and the soil should be kept rather dry in the early summer until the plant starts growing, before returning to regular watering.
  • Add a layer of horticultural grit to the planting hole to improve drainage as the bulbs do not like cold wet conditions.
  • Use a general purpose feed through the year.
  • Bulbs are frost-sensitive and should be protected overwinter with a layer of straw or fallen leaves.
