Oxalis rubra is a species of flowering plant in the woodsorrel family known by the common name red woodsorrel and windowbox woodsorrel. It is sometimes considered a subspecies of Oxalis articulata. It is native to Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay, but it is widely cultivated as an ornamental plant and can sometimes be found growing in the wild as a garden escapee. This is a perennial herb growing from a woody rhizome. There is generally no stem, the leaves arising on long petioles from ground level. Each leaf is made up of three leaflets which can vary in shape but are often heart-shaped. The inflorescence is a loose array of white to purple-pink flowers. 关于此艺术品
Similar to but slightly less hardy than the species Oxalis articulata rubra. Like that species, it often becomes a weed in lawns in the Lower and Coastal South and is highly susceptible to rust. Selection ‘Alba’ has white flowers; ‘Rosea’ naturally has pink flowers.
The fire fern ( Oxalis hedysaroides ‘Rubra’), not a fern at all, is a red-leaved oxalis sometimes grown as a houseplant, one of these “dancing plants.” The telegraph plant ( Codariocalyx motorius) seen using time-lapse photography. You can actually see it move, but not quite that fast!
Growing Oxalis outdoors in a shade garden or indoors as a house plant is very easy. If you plan to have guests over for St. Patrick’s day and looking for a way to decorate, be sure to include a pot or two of oxalis.
