Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea' Wood Sorrel



Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea' is also known as Wood Sorrel. It produces half-inch, fuchsia pink, flowers on fine stems that stand just above the attractive clover-like foliage. Oxalis 'Rosea' blooms in May-June, and again in September-October. Also sometimes known as Sweet Grass, its foliage is edible and has a distinct sweet taste. Interestingly, the leaves open during the day to receive sunlight but at night they fold up to look like a bouquet of little umbrellas.

Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea' prefers light or partial to mostly shade and moist, well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant once established. This bulbous perennial multiplies fairly quickly in good conditions.

We ship via UPS or USPS (the Post Office), and their ship rates are automatically generated through our site. We do not profit on shipping costs. We are working with these providers to get our customers the best rates possible.

All ship times are subject to change if extreme weather conditions are present here at the nursery or at the shipping destination.

Please note: Depending on the time of year, the foliage of the plants may be trimmed to fit into our shipping boxes. This could delay the flowering of the plant, but many perennials actually benefit from being cut back.

We are currently not able to ship to Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and outside of the US.
