Oxalis adenophylla 'Purple Heart'

14th June 2017

A small growing form of the species, the petioles are tinged slate-purple which gives a dark heart to the glaucous rosettes of leaves. I'm not very good at growing these but I couldn't resist giving it a try. It would prefer a dry, sunny climate to my dark dank summers but I am hoping that it will persist in an alpine house.
