Are you an oxalis fan? Here's a hard to find variety that offers the most fascinating silvery foliage, with an exceptionally pretty form. With decidedly pleated leaves, Silver Shamrock makes an excellent ground cover, in or out of bloom. Open-faced, five petaled flowers with white with violet-pink tips and tiny cranberry centers all but obscure the leaves when in full bloom. Found originally in the high peaks of Chile and Argentina, this sweet plant is cold hardy to zone 4 and still manages the truly toasty temperatures of zone 10 if given a little extra water. Longest lived in soil that drains well.
