A common name is "Iron Cross", after a famous cultivar; it is also known as "lucky clover", and in a wild or feral state as four-leaf sorrel or, least ambiguously, four-leaved pink-sorrel. Oxalis Deppe is a BULB growing to 0.3 m (1ft) by 0.1 m (0ft 4in).

Planting process of Oxalis iron :

when to plant : 

Oxalis go dormant in the summer rather than the winter and prefer being planted in the spring, as this lines up with their regular blooming period. Many species flower sometime between spring and summer with possible repeat blooms in the fall. While foliage typically emerges 3–4 weeks after planting, flowers can take 8–10 weeks to arrive.

How to plant : 

  • For outdoor landscape planting, locate an area with well-drained soil where your Oxalis will receive plenty of sunlight. If you live in a warmer climate, be sure to provide some afternoon shade. Dig holes large enough to house your Oxalis bulbs and position them approximately 3–4 inches apart and at a depth of 1–1 ½ inches. After placing the bulbs in the holes, cover with the surrounding soil and gently tamp down.
  • For container planting, find an area in your home with bright direct light and fill your container about three-quarters full with a well-drained potting mix. Water to settle the soil before placing the bulbs on top, spacing them several inches apart. Cover the bulbs with 1–2 inches of additional soil. If your Oxalis arrived pre-planted, feel free to skip this step and use the shipped container.
  • Water lightly, ½ to 1 cup will usually do the trick until top growth emerges.
Features of plant:
  • Both the leaves and the flowers make a very refreshing and thirst-quenching munch in the garden, they also make an excellent flavouring in salads. The leaves are available from June to October and the flowers from July to October, or even later in mild autumns.
  • The roots are up to 10cm long and 3cm wide at the top, they are tender and juicy but usually insipid. Occasionally the root has a pleasant acid flavour.
  • The foliage on Iron Cross has the appearance of a four-leaf clover and starts to appear in April. The pink flowers roll out like umbrellas to the size of 25p pieces during June – August. They spread to about 15 cm (6 in).
