(aka: O. triangularis ssp. papilionacea) This form of the South African O. regnellii has long been one of our favorites, but getting enough stock to offer has been tough until now. Silver butterfly oxalis makes a tight clump of olive-green, 3-leaf clover-like leaves. In late spring and summer, the clumps are topped with short spikes of small white flowers...just delightful!
