Wondering if anyone grows this oxalis? What is it? Found a pix of it, but no name. Love it. Would love to buy a start of it if anyone grows it. The bulbs must be small.

That looks like Oxalis corniculata - it's the one you keep pulling out of your pots. I've had some go variegated like that but it's not consistent unfortunately - most likely a weak mosaic virus.

I found a reference to Oxalis corniculata variegated form at Bananas,org. with a couple pics.

We had an oxalis turn up in the yard a couple years ago with variegation...asked at LSU Agcenter and was told it was caused by a virus... Shrug! perhaps it is a mutation caused by a virus??

I don't think this is O. corniculata. This one is for sale on Ebay and don't think anyone is seller O. corniculata, but more importantly O. corniculate does not produce bulbs.

Maybe not but I've seen mine look exactly like that from time to time.
