Report a problem
A Cistus introduction, collected near Rowdy Creek on the Smith River almost directly on the California/Oregon border. This form of the native redwood sorrel grows to 6-8" in height, the leaves dark green above with deep maroon undersides and the flowers, smallish and pale pink in spring and summer. Works well in the deepest dark, dry shade, or in dappled sun. Happy to go dormant in the summer but remains evergreen with some water. Grows vigorously in winter. Cold hardy in USDA zone 7. An excellent small-scale groundcover.

From the feet of the giant redwoods on the West coast this groundcover oxalis has a classy silver vein in the leaf and pretty pink flowers on 6 inch stems.
