Here’s a fun combination this from the garden this week, where we combined two three-leafed plants together…a silver leaf Trillium cuneatum with the hardy purple-leaf shamrock, Oxalis triangularis. You can have all kind of fun making these little vignette combinations in your garden, using your school colors, or any other design scheme that suits your tastes.
One of our winter garden favorites is looking so good right now, that we had to share. Oxalis palmifrons is an amazing, but slow-growing rock garden gem, that hails from the South African karoo. We offered this through Plant Delights almost a decade ago, and it will be some time before we have enough to offer again.
One of our best fall flowering perennials each year is the amazing South Africa Oxalis bowiei. Although it’s completely summer dormant, it more than makes up for lost time with its incredible flowering in the fall season and again in spring. Here is it in one of our rock garden sections today…after our first light frost.
