Purple Leaf Oxalis

Oxalis also known as Shamrock is a wonderful plant for shade gardening.  It is very low maintenance and doesn't require a lot of watering.  You can neglect it for a week and it will still put on a show.  I love the pink flowers over dark purple leaves.  This is a tough plant and it doesn't stop blooming.  Just make sure it's in the shade.    This is a keeper, I just hope it will survive the zone 6 winter, or maybe bring it indoors during winter.

 

The leaves of this plant close up at night and it opens up at dawn:

Colorful window box update

This window box is coming along nicely after about three weeks of regular watering, fertilizing, and deadheading.

This is how it looked like at the beginning of June:
