Redwood sorrel. A lush-looking California native from the understory of Northern California’s redwood forests. This selection forms clumps of velvety green, clover-like leaves to 4” wide on stems 2-10” high. Delicate pink flowers appear in spring and sometimes fall. Plant in partial to deep shade and provide regular garden water. Plants creep slowly by rhizomes and colonies may drift from the original planting over the years. Outstanding in association with native ferns like Woodwardia fimbriata or Polystichum munitum, or with shrubs like Philadelphus lewisii or Myrica californica. Hardy to 0F. Washington to California.
