Product Description:

A sweetheart of a plant, Iron Cross is easy to grow and exceptionally rewarding. This non-invasive oxalis produces lush mounds of jade green four-leafed clover foliage accented with a contrasting burgundy cross. Cheery rose-pink blooms open in summer and continue until frost. Growing 8–10 inches tall and wide, these non-fussy plants have limitless uses from mixed containers, filler amongst other perennials and even reliable houseplants. Hardy in zones 7–10.

Bulbs ship mid-March. Available only within the contiguous US.

Oxalis tetraphylla

Plant bulbs 1-1 1/2 inches deep and 3-4 inches apart in well-drained, fertile soil. Ideal spot would be a border or rock garden in full sun to partial shade where the bulbs form mounding plants about 10-12 inches wide. Hardy in zones 7-10, but in areas with colder winters, they can be grown in containers. For container growing, plant 3-4 bulbs in an 8 inch pot and leave in a cool spot over the winter, watering sparingly. Bring outdoors in early March or as soon as temperatures start to warm up.
