Out of Season Candycane Oxalis

Candycane Oxalis

Unique Form!

Thanks to its unusual shape and festive coloration, this oxalis variety is known as Candycane! Unique blooms of white are striped in bright red and surrounded by mounds of grasslike foliage in mid to late summer. This is an airy, delicate-looking 1-1½" flower that starts out as a helical cone shape and opens fully when it is warmed by the sun. Plus, each day the flower show starts again. The showy blooms of oxalis look amazing in sunny borders, rock gardens or decorative pots. They make a wonderful ground cover, too. Hardy in zones 7-9, so bring containers indoors to enjoy over the winter months in zones 3-6. Tolerant of many soil types and easy to grow.
