Shamrock

Shamrock

The potted shamrock plant (Oxalis regnellii) is a small specimen, often reaching no more than 6 inches. Leaves are in a range of shades and delicate flowers bloom off and on during fall, winter and spring. Leaves are clover shaped and some think the plant brings good luck. These leaves fold up at night and open when light returns. Also known as the lucky shamrock plant, growing Oxalis houseplant is simple and adds a touch of spring to the indoors during winter months.

 

You're lucky indeed if you have a shamrock plant (Oxalis spp.) because this little plant will reward you with an abundance of colorful and long-lasting, clover-shaped leaves. With a little tender loving care, shamrock, also known as wood sorrel or good luck plant depending on the variety, produces dainty blooms all winter. Although this tender perennial is often grown indoors, it is suitable for outdoor growing in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 6 through 10. Shamrock reaches a height of about 10 inches at maturity.
