WANTED: Wanted: Oxalis

msirie(7 - GA)February 15, 2013

Hey all,

I would like to replace my Oxalis. Had some in another state and they were beautiful. Unfortunately when I packed them in my suitcase for the trip to GA they were confiscated by TSA, (I think they just wanted some for their yard. lol)

I lhave cannas, rooted mint and bearded iris. if you would like to do a trade or I can do SASE, please let me know.

I would forever be grateful to you if you would share some with me. I've looked everywhere locally and none of the big box stores have it.

I orginally brought it on clearance from Walmart last year and I felt in love. I love them.

Please let me know what to do to get some.

Could someone recommend a reputable dealer, where I can purchase Purple Oxalis?

You probably missed out for the year as they seem to sell them during St. Paddy's day. Mine were a gift from my neighbor from Louisiana. Even Randall's was selling them back then but they thought a 6 inch pot was worth $20. They do not look like they would travel very well. Have you checked with your extension agent or your local nursery.

Just saw this...I have purple oxalis! Big dark purple leaves and pink flowers. How much are you looking for? Let me know what varieties of cannas, mint, and bearded iris you have!

Hello risinsun,
I am so happy to hear that you have purple oxalis. you just made my day. I am looking to fill 2 areas in the backyard with Purple Oxalis.

My bearded iris are white and the cannas are red. I am not sure whether I have spearmint or peppermint.

Mine are still potted, so I can probably share a a pot or two of them (which can be divided into several plants, at least). They should spread and fill your areas in quick. Are you also interested in the more common green Oxalis with pink flowers? It is a big-leafed variety, but I don't know the specific name. Anyway, I have lots of that growing in the ground already and can share some of that too, IF you want!

Do you have the green or dark leaf cannas?

Hi Risinsun,
I love the purple Shamrock, (of course) and I'ld love to try the common green oxalis, after reading so many good reviews on it. Can't wait to fill the backyard with these 2 beauties.

My cannas have dark leaves.

What's your address?

Hi Browneyedsusan,
I don't have a picture, because they are still coming up out of the ground, however I've found a picture online of what they would look like.

Take a peek.
