Oxalis articulata

Oxalis articulata

Family oxalidaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z6-9)
Flowers pink
Size 4"
Light sun-part shade

I received a few corms of this dainty little plant as a gift (technically, a pending trade) from a fellow gardener this spring. Put them in a pot, where they appeared to do nothing for quite a while - so I forgot about them. Until suddenly, in late summer, foliage appeared, soon followed by little pink flowers. I'm not sure if the pattern of emergence was due to improper growing conditions or inherent habit of the plant - but I plan to give it a real place in the garden next season and find out.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
