Oxalis crassipes 'Cherry Spritzer' is one of the most unique forms of the hardy South American oxalis we've grown. Shared by our friends at Yucca Do, it originated as a seedling in a Texas garden where it was initially distributed by plantsman Jeff Adams. Oxalis 'Cherry Spritzer' is a dramatic improvement over the typical Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea' in vigor, color, and floral show. The 10" tall x 2' wide, tight clump is topped in spring and again in fall with a dazzling show of hundreds of light pink flowers, each with a darker, cherry heart. We've grown this gem for eight years with no sign of seeding or spreading, two traits that get an oxalis banned from our garden.
