Though I have often said that there are no such things as indoor plants, I do bring flowers from my garden into the house as most of my plants are in containers. We are fortunate to have outdoor weather all year round so I prefer to enjoy them in the fresh air.
Recently I made an exception when my friend Lucy came to stay. For her I brought in an orchid in bloom and a pot of the ‘Love Plant’, Oxalis triangularis. It’s a charming plant grown from bulbs that is a giant purple three-leaf clover with clouds of pink blooms that look like hovering butterflies. I tried to encourage more leaf growth by cutting off the flower stems but couldn’t keep up with the speed they sprout, so I gave up.
It would tolerate being kept indoors but like all plants, it is happier outside.
