If Oxalis palmifrons isn't the cutest plant that you've ever grown, then you need to re-examine your definition of cute. Oxalis palmifrons hails from the deserts of South Africa's Western Karroo. This insanely cool oxalis looks for all the world like a giant green snowflake. The slowly spreading patch of ground-hugging rosettes spreads to 2' wide in 10 years. Each symmetrical rosette is composed of glaucous-green, three dimensional, miniature palm-like leaves. Oxalis palmifrons is a winter grower which doesn't emerge until late fall when it is topped with stalks of light pink flowers held just above the foliage. It remains evergreen all winter, finally going dormant when the heat of summer arrives. In colder climates, Oxalis palmifrons makes a great windowsill container plant.
