Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Oxalis are fascinating little alpines with bright funnel-shaped blooms in late summer and autumn. This collection brings together 3 intriguing varieties, each with their own distinctive appearance. ‘Gothenburg’ and versicolor are half-hardy and best grown indoors or in a heated greenhouse. ‘Ken Aslet’ can be grown outdoors to great success in a sheltered position.

Oxalis Bulbs Collection comprises 5 bulbs each of:

  • Oxalis versicolor - A half-hardy alpine with the most fascinating buds, like striped candy canes! Height: 10cm (4") Spread: 20cm (8").
  • Oxalis hirta 'Gothenburg' - This half-hardy variety boasts small grey-green leaves and large, well-defined, bright pink blooms that appear in autumn. Height and spread: 20cm (8").
  • Oxalis melanosticta 'Ken Aslet' - A hardy variety with golden flowers that emerge in late summer to bring a splash of colour to the rockery. Height: 10cm (4"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Outdoors, grow oxalis plants in containers or in sheltered rockeries and borders. In frost prone areas it is best grown as a houseplant on a bright windowsill or in a conservatory or greenhouse. Plant Oxalis corms at a depth of 3cm (1”) in well drained, rich fertile soil, or for indoor cultivation, in a loam based compost such as John Innes No.2. Position in full sun or light shade.
After flowering, allow the foliage to die back naturally before removing it. Oxalis bulbs require a short period of dormancy at this stage, during which time the compost should be allowed to dry out a little so that it is kept just moist. Resume feeding and watering when oxalis plants start into growth again.
