Chilean Wood Sorrel Overview
Oxalis adenophylla is a spring-flowering deciduous bulbous perennial species that produces a clump of grey-green foliage divided into narrow, heart-shaped leaflets. The cup-shaped rosy-pink flowers have rounded petals and are paler towards the centre, with purple throats. They typically close in response to dull weather and at nighttime. Also known as Sauer Klee, this tactile looking plant has earned a Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit and prefers a shaded location with rich good draining soil. These low maintenance plants make an attractive addition to alpine troughs and raised planters as well as rock and gravel gardens or along the edge of paths and patios
