My favorite plant

Oxalis Triangularis

A captivating purple shamrock with triangle-shaped leaves that close at night and open up again during the day.

I've had this particular plant since I moved to Springfield a few years ago. I transplanted it in May, it went into a short hibernation, then bounced back quickly and just keeps getting bigger. It has recently developed its first few flowers since the transplant, so that's been a happy surprise.

It seems to like indirect sun, moderate temperature and for the soil to stay moist. It's easy to care for, vibrant and interesting. I love my Love Plant.
