This large group comprises the wood sorrels-herbs growing from fibrous, tuberous, and bulbous roots. Some of the species, with their clover-like foliage and dainty flowers in shades of pink, red, lavender, and yellow are used as house plants. These varieties are semi-trailing and are usually grown in hanging baskets. Plant in Potting Afixturc 3 and keep in semi-dark until growth begins. After flowering, store in a cool, dark place.
