Oxalis plants from southern Africa in bloom

You might be familiar with the common wood sorrel (Oxalis acetosella). It has typical heart-shaped trifoliate sour-tasting leaves and delicate white flowers. It is rather common in our woods. In the Cape area of South Africa there are many species of Oxalis with different colours of flowers and extraordinary shapes of leaves.

Our botanical garden is in possession of a unique collection of these exotic plants, thanks to cooperation with scientists from the Department of Natural Sciences of the Charles University, including prof. RNDr. Jan Suda, Ph.D. The plants come from the southern hemisphere, and therefore it is now their blooming time. You can find the collection of african Oxalis species in a separate display case in the subtropical part of our greenhouse.
