Oxalis, Shamrock Plant.
I couldn't resist bringing one of these home from the grocery store. After all, St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner. The fun thing about oxalis is how it goes to sleep at night folding it's leaves together.
I tried one of these a couple of years ago, but it died; or, I think it died. I have since learned that the plant grows from a bulb. It will wither and rest as bulb plants need to do. Since this one was forced to bloom for St. Patrick's Day, it may need a rest soon after the holiday.
If you grow this plant, please share any advice you can. I really want to keep one as a houseplant. If I'm successful with this one, I think I'll get the purple variety too!
