Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea' (Oxalis Strawberry)

Oxalis Strawberry, Pink Wood Sorrel


Oxalis crassipes 'Rosea' (Oxalis Strawberry) is a charming perennial forming a lush mound of bright green, clover-like leaves. During the day the leaves open out to receive sunlight but at night they retract and fold up like small umbrellas, adding interest to the plant. From late spring until the first frost, the handsome foliage is topped by sprays of bright pink flowers that attract butterflies. Easy to grow and not invasive (this plant does not set viable seed), Rosea is perfect for edging, rock gardens or containers. A colorful addition with a long season of interest that is deer resistant.

  • Grows up to 10-12 in. tall (25-30 cm) and 14-16 in. wide (35-40 cm).
  • Easily grown in well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Tolerates a wide range of conditions, including drought. Provide occasional to regular irrigation and avoid overwatering during the dormant period. If no supplemental water is provided during hot, dry summers, this plant may go dormant but it will re-appear in fall and rebloom.
  • Clumps may be divided in early spring.
  • Propagate by division.
