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 late spring to early summer. So this one offers you lovely pink flowers and attractive foliage for your 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.
