The Purple Oxalis has deep purple leaves that open and close throughout the day, giving the appearance of “dancing” in response to bright light in the daytime and low light in the nighttime. With lively leaves and dainty white-pink flowers if given enough bright light, this plant is great for those looking for a fun and easy-going plant gift.

Native to multiple countries in South America, Purple Oxalis do best in bright indirect sunlight and can also handle direct sunlight through a window. However, if kept outside, be sure to place in the shade as it cannot tolerate direct sunlight when outside.
