Whilst this pic does indeed make the plant look like a Christia, it is, as Bloomer suspected, actually an Oxalis, specifically Oxalis triangularis - see pic & info below:

Yes, definitely Oxalis, with its leaves folded back - hence the confusion. It's tender, so in Scotland will need to be indoors for the winter.

I agree, Oxalis triangularis. We're selling a lot at work right now.
