Does anyone recognize this beauty? I didn't get a photo of the tag.

My thought was Oxalis but if so, I don't know which one ... maybe 'Plum Crazy'?: http://www.google.com/search?q=oxalis+plum+crazy&tbm=isch&tb...

I would agree with Oxalis, but no idea which one. That is an interesting contrast of the yellow flowers with the purple foliage.

Two for two in one day.
Thank you so much Lin, that is it. I wish now I would have bought it. But I don't think they are winter hardy.

I'd love to find that one for sale somewhere, it's gorgeous! I have the Oxalis triangularis pictured below in a container on my deck. It usually dies back in winter but returns each spring.


And, we have the one below that sprouts in the lawn every year and I've also found it sprouting in containers:

I live in zone 8, so I think it would have to come indoors for winter? That is why I didn't get it.

I think this is the outfit that introduced it? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb5vh5hFQXk&list=PLC3B32D5A87...
