Rare species collected in Lesotho, clump forming from bulbs with bright green three lobed leaves and masses of funnel shaped terracotta pink flowers in summer and autumn. Drained soil in full sun. 15cm.
Well behaved and deserving a special place where you can enjoy the flowers in the morning and early afternoon as they close up in the evening! Given good drainage Oxalis semiloba has proved hardy here in Norfolk to at least -7°C.
From southern Africa.
