Oxalis, success indoors
Thursday, 19 Jan 12 Rainy 10°C / 50°F
Oxalis ‘Sunset Velvet’ is a great annual, but I wanted more, I wanted it to be perennial as I hate spending money in the garden. I can report great success, cuttings seem to root easily in any season and they have overwintered really well in a cold bright room in the house. So much so that I’ll always keep some as houseplants.
I brought in the one I’d grown in a hanging basket (from a plug plant) and it has shed a lot of leaves but there is plenty of growth on the ends of each stem, all of which can be used for cuttings over the next 2 months.
