(Strawberry Oxalis) Oxalis 'Rosea' is a popular shade plant that just doesn't know when to quit blooming! Although it's a perennial, this plant blooms like an annual from late spring to early fall if kept moist. Vivid green, clover-like leaves are dotted with bright pink flowers that butterflies adore and are nice in fresh bouquets. 'Rosea' forms a low mound that is the perfect size for edging or containers. Like many oxalis, the leaves of this variety close up at night or when light levels are very low. It does not set viable seed, so there's no need to fear that it will become a nuisance in the garden. This variety has been used in Southern gardens for many years.
