Oxalis triangularis, also known as purple shamrock or false shamrock, is a perennial plant that is native to South America. It is a small plant that is often grown as a houseplant due to its attractive purple, clover-like leaves. The plant has small, pink or purple flowers and is tiny and fragile, blooming in the spring or summer.

The plant spreads out to a width of around 8 inches and grows to a height of roughly 6 inches. The leaves are deep purple in colour and triangular in shape. The blossoms can be pink to purple in colour and are tiny and fragile.

Oxalis triangularis is a low-maintenance plant that is easy to care for. False shamrock is toxic to pets, so it is important to keep the plant out of reach if you have pets at home. If ingested, the plant can cause vomiting and diarrhea in pets.

Overall, purple shamrock is a popular plant due to its attractive purple leaves and easy care requirements. It is a great addition to any home or garden.
