Ozzie, an Oxalis Tetraphylla Iron Cross, or Good Luck plant, is a beautiful plant with four bright green heart-shaped leaflets, each with a dark purple patch at its base.
Native to several countries around Southern America, Ozzie loves to show off small pink trumpet-like flowers during spring and summer, which believe it or not, are edible, and taste like lemon!
Ozzie, Oxalis Tetraphylla Iron Cross - Small
Ozzie prefers indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
