I have this nice well behaved Oxalis growing in my garden. I got it in a trade years ago and have since lost the ID tag. I was wondering if anyone recognizes it?

I can send photos by email if necessary. The system seems to diminish the quality of the image.

The enlargement is very clear, to me. And I really want someone to id this because I want some, right now. Got two or three really good spots for it, too.
Can't complain too loud about how the ball bounces when I'm the one who dropped it.

There are a couple of choices. I can't see the flowers quite clearly enough in the enlargement.

Carol,
I have a ton of this. I got it in a trade several years back and it's a winner! Does good in a pot or in the ground and blooms profusely without any care except regular garden water. I can send you a box of bulbs if you'd like. Maybe we could trade something.

Dee, I'd love to be able to trade if I had anything to trade. I just started this new garden from scratch last summer (late summer - not the perfect time to get the urge). Since I'm making it up as I go along I'm still waiting for spring seeds to get their patooties moving. Right now I'm filling in with annuals until I decide what to do next. The only oxalis I've seen is just too dark. I've got enough dark going on especially in spring, so on the lookout for good lights and brights.

There's also O. crassipes. IDK how in the world people tell these pink bulb-type Oxali (? LOL!) apart!

Thanks everyone! They do all look the same to me. I'll check out the key, Leslieray.
