(Spiral Sorrel)

Always recognized, the green shamrock-like leaves of the spiral sorrel are a soothing background for the small yellow flowers in spring and early summer. Not invasively weedy like many other bulb-growing members of Oxalis, this species spreads it sprawling stems to create a low, mounding mat. It grows from small swollen tubers (underground storage stems).

Tolerant of cool frosty winters when it will be dormant, the light bright green leaves emerge in spring along the elongating stems....

(Molten Lava Velvet Oxalis, Molten Lava Volcanic Sorrel, Volcanic Sorrel )

A paradox of cool green-yellow foliage with hot, vibrant rusty scarlet accents, the shamrock-like leaves of the Molten Lava volcanic sorrel are a pretty background for the small yellow flowers in spring and early summer. Not invasively weedy like many other bulb-growing members of Oxalis, 'Molten Lava' spreads it sprawling stems to create a low, mounding mat. It grows from small swollen tubers (underground storage stems).

(Volcanic Sorrel , Zinfandel Velvet Oxalis, Zinfandel Volcanic Sorrel)

A dulled velvet sheet of blackish purple, the shamrock-like leaves of the Zinfandel volcanic sorrel are a stark background for the small yellow flowers in spring and early summer. Not invasively weedy like many other bulb-growing members of Oxalis, 'Zinfandel' spreads it sprawling violet-red stems to create a low, mounding mat. It grows from small swollen tubers (underground storage stems).

(Four-leaved Pink Sorrel, Goodluck Plant, Lucky Clover, Mexican Wood Sorrel)

Bearing leaves that resemble those of a "four leaf" clover, this tender bulbous perennial is native to uplands of central Mexico.

Perched atop fleshy stems that arise directly from underground bulbs, the leaves have four typically triangular or heart-shaped leaflets, each with a chocolate chevron near its base. In forms such as 'Iron Cross', the entire lower part of the leaflet is chocolate-stained. In late spring and summer, cup-shaped pink to red flowers occur in loose clusters atop naked stems...

The trifoliate leaves of this popular ornamental appear atop slender, succulent stems that rise from clusters of fleshy, scaly, stoloniferous...

(Striped Squill)

The small but showy Puschkinia, or striped squill, is a bulbous perennial that blooms very early in the season. Each bulb produces two strap-shaped upright leaves, soon followed by a short, leafless flower stem bearing up to ten bell-shaped flowers. The flowers are bluish-white with fine blue lines down the center of each petal. Over time, the bulbs naturalize and spread to form sweeps of soft color.

Puschkinia, native from the Caucasus to Iran, grows and flowers best in sites...
