Oxalis oregana 'White'

Redwood Sorrel

Native to coastal forests from California to Washington, the creeping roots of this Oxalis send up velvety green clover-like leaves 8 to 10 inches tall. It has white flowers in spring. It is an excellent groundcover for part to deep shade and is good in combination with Fringe Cups, Leopard Lilies, Iris, and Redwood Violets.

Wildlife value: Songbirds such as Juncos and Sparrows occasionally eat the succulent leaves and minute seeds. Deer nibble the foliage.
