A diminutive member of the oxalis family, Grand Duchess versicolor is sometimes referred to as the "Candy Cane" plant and one glance at the flower buds explains why. With ruby undersides to the petals, unfurled buds exhibit an appealing red and white swirled pattern. This makes the unopened blooms as pretty as the mature ones. Buds twist open in the same spiral fashion that makes morning glories so fun. Delicate, lacy foliage completes the appeal. An award-winning candidate for borders and pots.
