Oxalis corniculata

Oxalis corniculata

creeping woodsorrel
Common name creeping woodsorrel
Family oxalidaceae
Life cycle annual/perennial
Flowers yellow
Size 2"

One of two (groups of) species of oxalis weeds in our garden. This one stays low, and grows wiry stems with dark foliage (sometimes almost black). Heart-shaped leaves, small yellow flowers. Not a problem weed - it's rather pretty, although it sometimes requires to trowel to pull up the roots.

Oxalis corniculata
It followed us to our Houston garden!
