Don't they look like something Willy Wonka would plant outside his factory?

Also called candy cane sorrel, these flowers are marked by their trumpet-shaped flowers with swirling red stripes that line the border of the petals, making them look like sticks of candy cane.

In the early spring, the sorrel shrubs begin blooming the trumpet-shaped candy cane-swirled petals.

When the flowers are fully bloomed, they reveal a snowy white color that adds a major pop against colorful gardens.

These plants are perfect for beginner gardeners or those who don't like high maintenance gardening.
