Oxalis palmifrons Family: Asparagaceae. An attractive winter growing shamrock species from South Africa. Plants make numerous palm-like leaves that form a whorl on short stems. Flowers are pale pink. Mature plants form big round mats of leaves that are amazing to behold!
Easy to grow. It is a winter grower so water regularly (in succulent terms) from fall until spring, then cut back or stop all together in the summer. It usually drops its leaves during the dormant period. The growing season is roughly September to May (but can vary). During the summer it dies back to the corms. Protect from frost.
You will receive the plant shown in the first three images. Plant shown in a 3.5" pot. Last image shows a mature specimen (credit Tony Rebelo).
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
