Oxalis versicolor Flowers
I still think the plant is rather rank and ugly but the flowers do have a certain charm to them. If the plant grew compactly (which I’ve seen it do online…WHY WON’T MINE LOOK LIKE THE PRETTY PLANTS ON THE PACIFIC BULB SOCIETY WEBSITE?!) I feel like it would make a fun Christmas flower. It’s small, it’s cute, the colors are all right…but no it has to look like a giant weed. I’m probably going to let it go dormant after it flowers and try it again this summer when I can grow it outside. Maybe it just needs really intense light to grow as a small mound? Maybe it needs a cooler nights to prevent stretching? Anyways I’m at least happy that it bloomed for Christmas like I was going for.
