The striking color of Oxalis burgundy makes it a popular pick for the miniature garden. It carries a deep, dark burgundy hue that varies according to light and growing conditions. In the northern zones, it is usually treated as an annual and serves as a gorgeous summer accent plant. In zone 8 or warmer, it is considered a perennial and works well in shade gardens. Consider this one for borders, hanging baskets, window boxes, and other containers. It produces bright yellow flowers with purple-red veins and forms mounds of clover-like leaves.
Relatively little active care is required for this plant. Oxalis burgundy needs well-draining soil and partial shade. It thrives with moderate temperatures and minimal watering. In northern areas, the plant will go through a period of winter dormancy.
