Plant Information

Here's a particularly interesting and beautiful member of the worldwide Oxalis family, which includes all the wood sorrels and lots of clover-leaved plants of all sizes and descriptions. This oxalis is native to Mexico, but has been cultivated in Europe since Victorian times. It is particularly handsome, both in flower and foliage, and has lots of common names. 'Iron Cross Oxalis' is one, and 'The Good Luck Plant' is another. Each of this plant's leaves is a perfect four-leaf clover. What's more, the leaves have distinct 'iron cross' markings in the centers, in fact, some hybrids have a clear maroon splotch on each petal, forming a cross. O. Deppei's summer flowers are also edible, often used in salads.

Oxalis deppei is hardy to approximately zone 7, and it makes a great pot plant anywhere. Unlike many of its genus, this Oxalis enjoys full sun. It's slow to come up in the spring after winter, and begins blooming in July.'

I planted this shamrock in a pot that sits on the table on my back deck, and plan to bring it inside for the winter. It was super easy to plant, grew very quickly and has been providing wonder small pink flowers all summer long. Even the folliage is a beautiful bi-color that will be lovely without the blooms.

The 15 bulbs provided filled out a 6 inch pot very nicely.

    Comments about American Meadows Shamrock Flower Bulbs:

    These are great! They will grow anywhere! When in the ground they get huge, staying smaller in pots. They come back each year (I put them in pots and save them in the garage once they go dormant). I even have them growing in my compost pile where I dumped some pots that I thought for sure were dead!

      Comments about American Meadows Shamrock Flower Bulbs:

      These came up far better than I expected and are doing very well in both pots and planted around my outdoor spigots. The ones near the spigots don't even need watering and are blooming beautifully. The leaves are very eye catching.

        Comments about American Meadows Shamrock Flower Bulbs:

        It's just about the only thing I purchased that survived the deluge of rain we have gotten in Houston this year. I planted it with jasmine ground cover because I loved the look of pink flowers peeking through it. The landscapers prefer to pull it out! STOP! Still seems to be sending up leaves so I have hopes for future flowers.

                          I got this oxalis to mix with another oxalis and it was great because it is a lot taller. I put several bulbs into pots and gave them as mystery gifts! People were thrilled when a lucky shamrock popped out of the dirt!
                          Every bulb came up. Very pleased.

                            These bulbs arrived with fresh white roots already growing. They all came up and I have enjoyed them immensely. Years ago I had this Oxalis, but had to give it away since I was going to be on the road for too long. The friend I gave it to promised to give me some bulbs back when I returned, but this never happened. It's good to have this pretty plant back on my patio again. It's September and it's still sending up flowers.

                                After I planted the bulbs I worried that the oxalis would look too "weedy." After all, I have to contend with the more ordinary varieties that keep popping up in the middle of the flower bed. However, the salmon pink blossoms and the dark foliage are both really quite beautiful. I planted in May, they sprouted quickly and started blooming in June and they are still going strong.

                                    USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                                    To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                                    • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                                    • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                                    Find Your Planting Zone:
