I do not know the name of this oxalis. Found a pix of it, apparently the bulbs are small. Wondering what it is and if anyone grows it? I would love to buy a start of it.

It sure is pretty and I'd love to have a gorgeous variegated oxalis like that but my first thought too was that the variegation was probably virus related. I did find a pretty one with a little variegation called 'Irish Mist'

Wood Sorrel (Oxalis triangularis subsp. papilionacea 'Irish Mist')

Thanks Jean. So the verigation will not be stable then? What a shame. Lin, I bought some bulbs of Irish Mist. I hope to grow those this season. Do you grow them?? They do look pretty. I'm excited about them. I also bought some called gold veigned oxalis, the veins in the leaves are golden in the pix. They have not come up yet so don't kno what they really look like, but the pix was stunning.

You are most welcome Donna. The gold vein Oxalis are striking in the pictures I saw.

I had bulbs for Oxalis versicolor 'Candy Cane', but something carried them off before I got a chance to see them bloom.

Mine are in a pot and did bloom last fall. Had three blooms. Died down, hoping they will start again soon.
