Iron Cross or False Shamrock, unlike many types of oxalis, is not invasive. It was introduced to European gardening in Victorian times. The cultivar name is derived from the maroon cross formed at the center of the four bright green-rimmed velvety leaves. Throughout summer and into early autumn it has big bright pink flowers.
Even if it never flowered the foliage is so gorgeous it belongs in the garden. That it also flowers for quite a long time just adds to its excellence. The flowers are almost crimson they are so darkly pink.
