Oxalis 'Tyrian Purple' is a 2024 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction of our 2000 collection of the North American native (Canada south to Mexico) woodland Oxalis violacea from near Lafayette, Georgia. This exceptional form sports foliage with a strong purple band in the middle of each leaf. In spring, the clumps are topped with a lovely show of near white flowers--quite different from the typical mid-lavender. Although Oxalis violacea is typically a woodland denizen, we find it much more showy when grow in full sun for at least a half day. If you want to prevent extra seedlings, be sure to deadhead it immediately after flowering.
