Oxalis: More Than A Lucky Shamrock

Happy St. Patricks Day!   In the spirit of the day, I thought I would try to give you some apropos Oxalis inspiration.  I remember the very common oxalis that grew in our front  lawn when I was a kids….sitting for what seemed like  hours trying to find a four leafed version.  But did you know that there are actually a lot of other really exciting and interesting varieties of clover?  They have pretty leaf color, interesting shapes and flowers and are really great ground cover. Here are some lesser known varieties:

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    My fave is the Oxalis triangularis, being a sucker for purple. I did have one but stupidly left it out in the garden when I should have brought it in as a houseplant. I’ll definitely have to find a new one now for sure.
