Oxalis ‘Burgundy Bliss’

I recently wrote about my new oxalis obsession elsewhere on the site, including a wide view of this particular plant, ‘Burgundy Bliss,’ in its pot. Then a friend sent me a link to this blog featuring a collection of phenomenal oxalis plants.

Look at Oxalis obtusa ‘Coral’, and the thin lines of colour through the petals. Or the way that Oxalis versicolor’s petals unfurl in a spiral to reveal a strip of colour along the edges.

I am done for.

  1. Too late for me, I’m afraid, I’m already addicted. My favourites are the South American species and their hybrids. But I also like the South Africans that are, for me, just coming out of dormancy in the greenhouse. Check out Telos Rare Bulbs for availability and pictures.
