Oxalis Triangularis, a deciduous plant commonly known as False Shamrock, Purple Shamrock or Wood Sorrel, is a species in the Oxalidacease family. It comes in two varieties: the Oxalis Regnellii which has green leaves with small, white, trumpet shaped flowers, and the other, referred to as Purple Shamrock which has purple leaves and small white or pink blossoms.

This is a very easy foliage plant to cultivate and maintain. Incredibly long lived, Purple Shamrock is not invasive and is a good choice for containers, borders, or indoors. Great as a groundcover in mild winter areas.

How to Start Your Oxalis Off Right

Oxalis Triangularis are plants that grow from bulbs. Propagation is usually easy and accomplished by division of the side-bulbs after a dormant period.

Divide the bulbs by separating the roots into smaller clump. When you pot them, make sure each one has its own container.

When growing Oxalis outdoors, you should find that it fares well in zones that correspond with U.S. Department of Agricultures zones 6 through 10. Plant the Oxalis with a 12 to 15 space between outdoor plants and one to 2 inches deep. Water the soil well and confirm good drainage. You’ll see blooms in about 8 weeks.

To grow your Oxalis indoors, place up to 5 bulbs in an 8-10 inch pot to create a houseplant. Water the soil well, ensuring it drains well. You can expect to see blooms within 10 weeks.


Watering Needs

When watering your Oxalis, keep the soil a bit moist and allow the top inch or so of soil to dry out between watering. If your Oxalis is container grown, it is recommended you drain the water from the bottom of the pot after watering. Too much water or poor drainage can cause root rot.

Average room humidity should be fine for indoor Oxalis. An occasional light misting will be beneficial, especially if your indoor environment becomes less humid due to heating or other climate control.

Once your plant has become dormant, it is best to stop watering the plant for about one month. When you notice new growth, you can resume your normal schedule.


Lighting Needs

When grown indoors, too little light can cause your plant to become thin and weak. If grown inside, place the plant in a southern window if possible. If a southern exposure is not available, an eastern or western window can provide the light you need.

When grown outside, it is best to plant the Oxalis in an area that receives good sunshine throughout most of the day with partial shade occurring at some point during the day.

You can give your houseplant a boost by letting it spend time outdoors when the weather is good. The brighter the light source, the more colorful the foliage and blooms will be.


Pruning Your Oxalis Triangularis

When foliage looks withered and begins to die off, this is probably a sign your plant is entering a normal dormant phase. After the foliage turns brown, you can simply remove the dead leaves and wait for the next growing phase. This could be anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. When you begin to see new growth, normal watering and feeding schedules can be resumed.

    They are blooming

    I will certainly buy these again to fill in a spot that just doesn’t get enough sun for brighter flowers. They came easily and are now blooming so I can’t complain. Thank you!

    Great I just wish there were more.

    Every bulb sprouted I love it. I wish it was like doubled so my plant would be that much bushier. I didn’t get what the picture shows as far as amount but still happy.

    Kind of a pain

    The experience has been a pain. Absolutely no support information. No company information, no marketing materials, no instructions. No tag — I didn’t even know what these were! There were a few big, healthy bulbs but most were very small. They were packaged in a plastic case — helpful if they’re sprouting, though I’d prefer a recyclable container.

    Tiny pieces

    I love purple shamrocks. This company broke the roots in very tiny pieces. After four weeks about half of the root pieces sprouted. It’s a matter of time now.Review:. I had (4) out of (20) grow. The way to propagate shamrocks is to break the roots. These roots were broken into such tiny pieces. Perhaps theymay root after a year or so.

    Oxalis Bulbs

    It’s a stretch to call what I received “bulbs”. They were dried up flattened “seeds”. They were dried and broken.

    Doesn’t want to grow.

    Got the 10 seeds. Planted them immediately. After a month 2 little sprigs have finally come up. Got my fingers crossed they make it. Was looking forward to watching them grow.

    Beautifl plants in a hurry.

    They are like little bulbs almost, but planted they germinate quickly and grow quickly. I believe they are hardy in my zone. and I should be able to enjoy them for years to come.

    did not grow

    It’s been 5 weeks since planting and only one sprout came up. planted another variety from another source the same day in same soil and pots and all came up with multiple sprouts per bulb. Very disappointed

    I ordered these bulbs as a gift for my mother. Bulbs were dry and shriveled and of the 10 only one sprouted and then died despite giving them the recommended care. I would not purchase again. I ordered bulbs from another company for the same kind of plant and those grew nicely .

    Don’t know if it was the pods or not but they looked rotten when they came but I planted them anyway and they didn’t come up and now I can’t find the pods in the dirt so they must have rotted. Disappointing

    Not all bulbs grew

    I gave this only 3 starts because out of the 10 only 3 grew and I have green plants like this they are easy to grow you can’t kill them. Also does not look this purple it is more of a dark wine color.

    Seed difference

    The seeds were different in appearance. Some were grey/black, round and hard — like small pebbles. Regret not taking a picture. Planted them in the hope they will grow. Will see.

    Most of them aren’t viable

    I bought two packs of 10, and got them today. The first one had 20 bulbs, which was great because half of them were black. A couple had tiny sprouts, , and I’m pretty sure they’re viable, the rest didn’t look great, but they didn’t look quite dead yet. The second pack had one viable bulb. The rest were beyond black and turning ashy. I threw them all in a pot anyway, and we’ll see what we see. Fingers crossed.

    Tiny corms

    Dormant or dead, will soon find out.

    Planted them in our yard and have been anxiously waiting for them to sprout. So far not a single one has germinated, but it’s still cold at night. Too early to know if dormant or dead.

    This is my third order of these. Each one turned out to be a bit different than the previous order…..always surprised and I love it! They grow within 4 days of planting and grow so fast it seems that I could actually sit there and watch them grow,LOL! These are just so much fun!

    Bulb or not?

    Contents arrived in a plastic (ziploc type) bag. It appeared to be small clusters of dirt and not bulbs at all. To the touch, these contents didn’t even feel like this plant’s bulbs. I know how this plant’s bulbs look and feel; I previously planted some 4 months ago; totally different. I have no idea if I planted bulbs ( a little over a month ago) or just dirt. Maybe something will sprout soon.

    Lower your expectations

    Do not expect what you get in this picture. Each bulb sends up one, maybe two very delicate leaves. I have tried growing them in three different conditions with the same results. Maybe over time they will get more robust but do not expect what is in this picture unless you plant 100 bulbs in a very small pot

    This is my 1st plant. I put all 10 bulbs I put all 10 bulbs in the same pot. I ordered another pack for outdoor potting 4 weeks ago but those haven’t sprouted yet… I just realized I never submitted the first review. The second order of bulbs(seeds) didn’t bloom at all..not 1 leaf. The 1st plant is still thriving.

    Super excited to see them grow

    I am super impressed with these bulbs. I love gardening and growing flowers, so I have seen every bulb out there, but for these to be shipped and fall out of an envelope, they were as nice as ones I would get from a nursery. Very good price too, better then what I would pay locally. Can’t wait to see these grow into a beautiful plant. Good price, highly recommend.

    Great bulbs Starting to sprout quickly.

    My picture is of the first bulb that sprouted after 4 days. I started the bulbs in a Mericle Grow potting soil with slow release ferterlizer. Misting the soil daily and keeping in a sunny location. Its day 8 and three more bulbs have sprouted.Bulbs arrived in perfect condition. No moldy bulbs that other reviews have mentioned.

    Non growing bulb or tubers in shipments.

    Tubers arrived promptly however even tho planted promptly very few came up. Resulting in skimpy appearance. So I reordered although not sure it was from Same supplier. The second order arrived promptly and were planted promptly and almost none have actually put out any plants. I don’t want a refund nor do I want to send them back but I do want Amazon to know I’m not at all happy with the product.

    My purple Shamrocks are Beautiful and Came Up in Such Short Time

    I ordered these Purple Shamrock bulbs and waited about a month and there was not one sprout. I ordered them again and planted them as soon as they arrived, and to my surprise the started coming up in less than two weeks. That was about three weeks ago and are all up and started to bloom yesterday. They are beautiful and their delicate pink flowers are very pretty.I am very happy with this order.

    Bulbs arrived all dried up

    I am very suspicious that these are all dead. I’ve been growing shamrocks since I was a kid (my green is a third generation offshoot from my Gran’s) and I’ve never seen the “bulbs” look this bad. They’re all dried up, a couple look like they have dried mold on the end, and a few others look like small black rocks. These few are the best looking of the lot, yet they are all dry. I have planted them, if they come up, I’ll change my review. If nothing happens though, I want new, fresh bulbs sent to replace them. Capisce?Update: Two weeks and no sign of anything.

    The bulbs came in plastic sealed small package. Some of the bulbs were a bit sticky out of the bag. It’s my first time buying it so I wasn’t sure if how they were supposed to be. It has been a month since I planted them, only one seed sprouted and look great, all others haven’t. My own data shows 10% germination rate.

    Sprouted bulbs

    The seeds arrived this evening 7/6/23 in a timely fashion as expected. The seeds are approximately the size and shape of a small olive pit. I immediately noticed that several seeds/bulbs had sprouted a root. There were a few black ones and some were a brownish color. About a good six or seven had a root but i planted them all anyway just to see if the black ones will end up growing or not. I planted 5 in a medium pot that I already had and the other half I planted outside. So I will update when or if they begin to pop up. In the picture there’s only 5 shown because I was so excited that I ran outside to plant them without think about taking a picture of the packaging or the condition of the seeds so you can see the ones that I ended up planting in a pot inside. I will try to remember to update on the progress.

    I was a little put off by the tiny sopping wet package, and then I opened it and it looked like they were covered in mold. But I dropped them in the little planter anyways to see what happened. Internet said 3 weeks until sprouts. I had 2 after 3 days. This pic was a week later.
