Got an order of Oxalis 'Iron Cross' bulbs a while back which I planted in groups of 3. They came up nicely. Now all of a sudden, joining a group of 2 'Iron Cross' is this! Any idea if there's a small bulb that would produce this kind of flower? I guess it's also possibly from a stray seed that happened to land right in this spot and germinate. Anyone have any idea what it might be? It doesn't seem to have any leaves yet.

Looks like a bud for Iron Cross Oxalis (Oxalis tetraphylla 'Iron Cross') to me too.

Whew! I am so relieved it was just a test. My eyes don't see some of the "fine print" in pics anymore...thought I was missing something. Blinking Smiling
