Oxalis Versicolor (Candy Cane Sorrel) is a unique bulb with really spectacular flowers! Very beautiful in full bloom, they are even more stunning when they have not quite opened up completely and display a striking red and white striped pattern. They can be planted in the garden or in a planter on the patio or window-box. Store your oxalis frost free over the winter.

Oxalis versicolor (candycane sorrel), family Oxalidaceae. Many of the species are known as wood sorrels (sometimes written "woodsorrels" or "wood-sorrels") as they have an acidic taste reminiscent of the unrelated sorrel proper (Rumex acetosa). Some species are called yellow sorrels or pink sorrels after the color of their flowers instead. Other species are colloquially known as false shamrocks, and some called sourgrasses. For the genus as a whole, the term oxalises is also used.
