Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Oxalis hirta 'Gothenburg' is a half hardy Sorrel originating from South Africa. This showy variety boasts small grey-green leaves and large, well-defined, bright pink blooms that appear in autumn. In a good display, the foliage can be completely covered by its funnel-shaped flowers. This half-hardy Oxalis is best grown in the greenhouse or on a warm windowsill indoors in all but the very mildest parts of the UK. A lovely talking point that provides a splash of colour just as the rest of the garden is fading. Height and spread: 20cm (8").

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.
