Stunning when in full bloom, the flowers are even more striking when in bud, when the flowers are marked with vivid crimson-pink stripes, hence its more common name, the Candy Cane Sorrel.

Top Tips

After flowering, leave the foliage to die down naturally and cut back when it has turned yellow.

Care Information

  • The small bulbs of Oxalis Versicolor will naturalise over the years and the soil should be kept rather dry in the early summer until the plant starts growing, before returning to regular watering.
  • Add a layer of horticultural grit to the planting hole to improve drainage as the bulbs do not like cold wet conditions.
  • Use a general purpose feed through the year.
  • Bulbs are frost-sensitive and should be protected overwinter with a layer of straw or fallen leaves.
