Description
This little floral treasure is from high in the mountains of South America, but is perfectly happy in most of North America. Planted in fall, these little irregularly-shaped bulbs bloom in mid-summer. So this one offers you lovely pink flowers and attractive foliage for your summer garden, year after year, in spreading clumps.

Of course, there are several wild Oxalis species native to North America, but most of ours do not have flowers as showy as this Latin American beauty.

          I have spaced these little beauties along the edge of my bed of azaleas and rhodies. Their ruffled light green leaves are coming up now that spring is finally here. I am ready to order one more bag to complete the border.

            planted in the fall, so much fun to see things pop up where you forgot (no i do not make records of where things are!)
            that you planted anything. Everyday something new is blooming.
            Beautiful pink blossoms.
