Description How to Grow Delivery

Also known as ‘Brazilian Butterfly’, Oxalis triangularis (Green) is a truly stunning plant. Dainty, triangular leaves are held on fine stems like a flutter of green butterflies. In summer it produces sprays of white or pale pink trumpet-shaped flowers. An additional curiosity of this unusual species is that like butterflies closing their wings, the leaves fold down at night, reopening in response to higher light levels in the day.

A prize plant for a cool room or conservatory which can be enjoyed in a shady spot outdoors during the summer months. RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Height and spread: 10-20cm (4-8in).

1 x 12cm Potted Plant (20cm Tall) (KF1445)

This deciduous, frost-tender plant can be grown in a cool room indoors or cool conservatory/greenhouse. If wished, it can be placed in a shady spot outdoors during the growing season, when all risk of frost has passed. Grow in a moisture-retentive but freely draining potting mix, watering moderately whilst in growth. Feed with a balanced liquid fertiliser during the growing season. In winter, the plant dies back down to a tuberous rhizome – keep it barely moist during this period.
