Put 30 of these in the ground last fall. There were small bulbs/tubers. Only about half came up this Spring. I want to get more but I can't find their tag nor remember their name. I picked them because they are small, mounding plants, about 6-10 inches high and around. IIRC, they will get white flowers on them (or orange, I remember having my eye on one that had orange flowers). Don't laugh... I planted 256 things in the ground last year. Smiling

Look up Oxalis adenophylla - there are several flower and leaf color variations but I don't think orange is one of them.

SILVER SHAMROCK... Oxalis Adenophylla.... thank you!! Now that I think of it, I did decide on it with the pink blooms... thought the 30 of them would look great on the border with 16 Geranium "Johnson's Blue" right behind them.

Thanks again, both of you... I'm Impressed, not a common plant.
