Family oxalidaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers yellow (spring-summer)

One of the most prolific weeds in our garden - with its grassy-green upright growth, it's good at hiding among other plants, sending forth its seeds before it is ever noticed. One of its redeeming features is that it pulls up very easily, roots and all. Some weeds, I have hopes of eliminating from our garden - this one is a lost cause - I'll be pulling it forever :-)

This is a weed in our garden
