Oxalis Triangularis (Purple Shamrock) is my kind of plant, itt is a little bit magic, because it can revive itself from the dead! Rather than being intrinsically linked with the soil like many other plants, Oxalis is linked to the soil by its tiny bulbs. Forget to water it, temperature drops too low or its living conditions are generally poor, everything above the surface will wilt and die back to take refuge in the bulbs below. As soon as good conditions are restored the plant comes back to life incredibly quickly. This is great for those little accidents where we forget to water our plants for several months at a time, not so good for those who live in temperate regions of the world where this plant can be viewed as a weed. Let's not dwell on such things though!
This design is inspired by Mid-century Modern design. Simple shapes and bold colours create an effective pattern. 'Form follows function' was a popular design theory during the 20th century and the Mid-Century Modern movement embraced functionality. This brought together a mix of organic shapes, clean lines and minimal embellishments. Typical Mid-Century Modern features include: sculptural, organic shapes.
