This amazing heat-loving false shamrock comes from our friends at Yucca Do, who got it from a Houston gardener named Francis, who discovered it as a garden seedling. Oxalis 'Francis' makes an 8" tall x 1' wide clump of 3-lobed, shamrock-like, bright purple leaves that look great all summer. The clumps are topped in fall with light lavender flowers. Oxalis 'Francis' is a lighter purple than Oxalis 'Atropurpurea' that almost glows. We think this is indeed a very special selection.
